What is Beep Baseball
Beep Baseball is an adapted version of the national pastime. The game is modified with the use of a ball and bases that beep. The ball emits a rapid beep where the bases sound a buzz so they can be distinguished from each other.
Each team has six players, who are always blind folded so that the playing field remains level. Each team also has its own pitcher and catcher. The object is to maximize the opportunities of putting the ball in play.
Once the ball is hit by the batter who also is blind-folded, the batters goal is to reach either of the two bases before the ball is fielded by the opposing team. The bases are 100 feet from home plate down the first and third base lines.
If the batter reaches the base without being put-out, then their team is awarded a run, but if the ball is fielded by the opposing team then the batter is out. Their are six innings in a game and three outs per inning. Each batter is given four strikes and one pass ball.
