ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - It's been called "America's favorite pastime."  Baseball is the name of the game for this year's 10th Annual Beepball Tournament.  Beepball gives the blind and visually impaired the chance to partake in the game so many love.

In the Ultimate Beepball Tournament, everyone is blindfolded, except the pitcher and the catcher.  Through the use of different "beeps" and special sounds, players on the field are able to get around the baseball diamond in fun, competitive fashion.  The 10th Annual MindsEye Ultimate Beepball Tournament is Saturday, July 23 beginning at 8 A.M. at Assumption Parish ball fields.
