Tyler Tigers Hosting Annual Breast Cancer & Blind Awareness Event
If you have never heard of Blind Beep Baseball, I strongly encourage you to make time to check out one of their games. It is called Blind Beep Baseball because the players are legally blind. Some are completely blind while others sight is not all there and then you have the players who can see perfectly however they are the pitcher and the catcher.
