Beep Baseball

For my first post I wanted to talk about Beep Baseball.

They use a softball during the game and players can hit a homerun without ever seeing the ball. The sound of the ball positions the players to finally make contact using the bat then to run to the base. It's been said by research that suggest that blind individuals tend to contain sounds better than sighted people. Here's a video to show how this game works:
