Congratulations to Marilyn (and Kent)
Marilyn scored a record setting (for this year) 5 points against a tough two-three defense. "When I heard Tom say 'by me' I knew I had it," Marilyn beamed as she scored a two pointer to clinch the win. With the excellent pitching of Kent, all players were hitting the ball. John started the game off with a solid four points, and then Tom came along and tied him. Normally, this would have clinched a win. But Marilyn brought it close to perfect. Six points was the maximum obtainable. Of course, it must be noted that she had an advantage. She was not in the field to scoop up the outs!

What is "Beepball," anyway?
Beep Baseball (or Beepball) is the adaptive version of America's favorite pastime for the blind and visually impaired. The game is fun, action filled, and a great sport for players and spectators alike.
Beepball is alive and well in Minnesota. In the Twin Cities, a core group of players and volunteers meet most Saturdays during the spring and summer months to play, get exercise and have fun. Sponsored by the Midway Lions Club, the team also helps support other charitable organizations.
Each year, the Saint Paul Saints Baseball Team invites the team to play an exhibition game immediately preceding the Saints game. This year, the game was held on Thursday, May 7, 2009. The "All Stars" of the Midway Lions Club played a team made up of local non-visually impaired impaired celebrities. This year, the All Stars won easily 8-1.
Check out other tournaments here.
