The adaptive sport Beeping Kickball lets those who cannot see enjoy this classic game. The sighted wear blindfolds.


(WBIR-West Knoxville) It's called kickball but it is very different. There's no pitcher, only first and third bases, the kickball beeps and everyone wears blindfolds during a game of Beeping Kickball. That levels the playing field for those who can see and those who are blind.

The team from Club VIBES challenged WBIR's Heartbreakers to a game at Fuse Sportsplex Tuesday afternoon.

Club VIBES is planning a trip to California this summer to ride tandem bicycles. They are hosting a kickball tournament next month as a fundraiser. It is regular kickball, no blindfold required.
