Saint Leo University’s baseball and softball teams and Campus Recreation joined the Office of Accessibility Services for the annual beep baseball game on Oct. 13, at the university’s Turf Stadium on campus.
Part of Disability Awareness Week activities at Saint Leo, the annual game is a
favorite for competitors and spectators. During the game, the baseball and softball teams and others learn what it’s like to play this adaptive sport for the blind and visually impaired by putting on blindfolds and having to keep their ear on the beeping ball and bases. The softball team won 8-7 on a walk-off hit.
Area 5 serves those in Pasco, Hillsborough, Sumter, Citrus, Hernando and Pinellas counties.
