 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.

Beepball is…

…an educational service to create awareness of the

visually-impaired community.

…an opportunity for team building and fun.

…a way to connect all citizens to Saint Louis’s vibrant baseball community and heritage.

Educational

MindsEye is committed to making Beepball educational by doing demonstrations inside schools and institutions in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area. Whether its visiting schools like River Bend Elementary School, Webster University and the Special School District of St. Louis County, MindsEye is committed to teaching about inclusivity, blindness*, sportsmanship, and collaborative teamwork.

MindsEye is also educating people at events! Just this past year we helped dozens of people at events like the Great Grilled Cheese Off 2018 and STL Square Off Festival 2018 learn about the great game of Beepball.
