Imagine a baseball diamond.
Now imagine that first and second base are tall, buzzing, blue-foam pillars, and that third base is gone.
Now imagine six fielders and a couple "spotters," who direct fielders toward a beeping ball — because everyone except the spotters, the pitcher and catcher are blind and/or blindfolded.
That’s what a beep baseball game looks like.
The 2012 National Beep Baseball Association World Series is underway in Ames, Iowa, where several teams of blind and visually impaired players will compete. Representing Austin, the Blackhawks added another win in their fight for the pennant Thursday.
