Metro Parks Launches Beep Baseball League
Louisville Metro Parks & Recreation has launched a Beep Baseball league, an adaptive version of America’s favorite pastime, tailored for people with visual impairments. Developed in the mid 1960’s, beep baseball takes its name from a rechargeable ‘beeping’ device fitted to the regulation 16-inch softball, so that it can be heard by players.

Games will be held Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. from September 16 through October 14 at Joe Creason Park, 1297 Trevilian Way. The cost is $25 per player, and registration is underway. To register for the Metro Parks beep baseball league, call 502-456-8148, or email bj.levis@louisvilleky.gov

A complete description of the game, game rules and other information can be found at www.nbba.org
