Beep Baseball - Baseball for the Blind & Visually Impaired
The Long Island Bombers are a dedicated group of baseball enthusiasts and athletes from Long Island, NY. They just happen to be blind and visually impaired. The Bombers play beep baseball, a modified version of traditional baseball that uses a beeping ball and buzzing bases to guide the players to score a run.
Many of the players are not allowed to get involved in sports at their schools due to a lack of equipment and the fear of injury. At the Bombers, players have everything they need to be competitive, meet other people like them, and engage in a game they thought they would never have the opportunity to otherwise. The Bombers gather the blind and visually impaired from across Long Island and gives them a community to bond with and a great game to play!
The team shows us that no matter what obstacles are ahead, the ability to succeed lies within all of us.
