Being blind or visually-impaired can leave an individual excluded from certain sports, but baseball doesn’t have to be one of them. Meet the Long Island Bombers, a baseball team comprised of members that have visual difficulties. They play a modified form of baseball that uses beeps to assist the players. The team rely on their hearing to run to beeping bases, but the challenge is that each base goes off at random! The Bombers play competitively against both sighted and visually-impaired teams. Beep baseball provides participation and inclusion for those typically excluded from such activities, such as at school. It allows members to gain confidence in their athletic skills and strengthens teamwork.
