The Las Vegas 51s joined Nevada Blind Children’s Foundation spring break campers Wednesday for a game of “Beep Baseball.”

In Beep Baseball, the bases contain sounding units that give off a buzzing sound when activated. The batter does not know which one will be turned on. When the ball is hit, the base operator activates the base opposite of where the ball is hit.

The runner must run with assistance if necessary to the buzzing base, before the ball is fielded by a defensive player. If the runner is safe, a run is scored. The player then heads back to the bench and the next batter is up.

This partnership introduces blind and visually impaired children to the game of baseball by providing them an opportunity to tour the stadium, meet the players, and play an adapted version of the game.
