Baseball With An Amazing Twist
Described by blind athletes as “a dream come true,” Beepball adds a spin on baseball that allows those who are legally blind to compete.
Players are guided by sound, not sight-- the sound of the beeping ball, buzzing bases, and cues from the pitcher. While the game provides unique opportunities for blind athletes, it also brings the blind community a step closer to ever sought-after acceptance and equality.
MindsEye’s commitment to creating more of those moments into our community means that Beepball is no longer a one-day event! This venture is designed to get EVERYONE in the game.
…an educational service to create awareness of the
…an opportunity for team building and fun.
…a way to connect all citizens to Saint Louis’s vibrant baseball community and heritage.

A.J. is MindsEye's "Ambassador of Beepball." Here he is pictured with his parents after receiving his 2015 Vision for the Game award. A.J. promoted beepball at his elementary school where MindsEye hosted a beepball demonstration to help A.J. share the sport with his sighted classmates.
