Beep Baseball

Hosted by Topica

 
Beep Baseball, often also referred to as Beepball, or Beeperball, and even Beeper Baseball, is the sport of baseball--actually more like softball--adapted so that it can be played by the blind and visually impaired.
It's a fun and challenging game of baseball where all players except for the pitcher and catcher are blindfolded! The blindfolds ensure fairness in the game--due to different levels of vision among players.
The ball beeps one tone and the bases beep in a different tone, to allow all players to locate the ball and bases as necessary. It's a fun and exciting game to not only be a part of, but to watch, as well!
This discussion list is for all who are currently involved in the sport or who support the game, and also for all who want to learn more about the game of Beep Baseball.
This Beep Baseball Discussion List is managed by the Coventry South Sharks' -- Akron Ohio's own Beep Baseball team. But it is a general list dedicated to the growth and support of Beep Baseball across the USA.
The National Beep Baseball Association (NBBA) is the governing organization for the sport of Beep Baseball here in the USA. If you want to learn more about the game of Beep Baseball, please go to Our Website

Blind Liberal

Hosted by SmartGroups

 
There are many groups out there where we can debate current events in the news and other issues. However, it seems that it is fashionable to bash liberals and other non-conservative folk merely for having their own world view, thanks to popular conservative talkshow hosts and rampant neo-conservatism and neo-patriotism. This is a place where not only liberals but those in the center or who have more realistic views uncolored by party politics may send articles or discuss whatever they like. It doesn't have to be serious material either. If you'd just like to chatter and get to know one another as people, that's OK. Just relax and have fun and feel safe. If you have joined this list to cause trouble or shout down people who do not take your side, this is not the place for you. Try joining the blind-side group at Smartgroups for any of that. We need a place where those of us with what is apparently an unpopular view may speak our minds safely without being persecuted.
