Beep Baseball World Series Kicks Off in Hilton

-
The National Beep Baseball World Series kicked off their first games, Tuesday. Visually impaired teams from around the world competed at Grace and Truth Fields in Hilton.

The game is a little different than baseball, a ball with a beeper is thrown over the plate. If the batter gets a hit, they run to a beeping base down the first or third base line. If the runner gets to the base safely before the fielding team gets the ball, the batter's team get a run.

It's a great opportunity for people who you might not think of as athletes.

"We have to show the world that we can get out, and that we can have a good time, just like anybody else. We just have to do things a little bit differently and adapt to things differently," explained Jessica McTiernan

The tournament lasts until this weekend.
