The Chicago Comets is a team that is open and accepting to all races, ethnicities, genders, and disabilities. We have always been inclusive, and we promote diversity.

The Chicago Comets will continue to fight racial injustices, fight for human rights, and promote understanding of all races, ethnicities, and disabilities. 

About the Comets: The Comets are composed of Blind or Visually Impaired men and women from the Chicagoland area who love to play beep baseball. The team has been in existence since 1995. They are members of the National Beep Baseball Association (NBBA) a league comprised of teams from the United States, Canada & Taiwan.

Beep Baseball also known as Beep Ball is similar to traditional baseball, with some modifications. We use a modified 16 inch softball with a rechargeable battery and speaker built in that emits a beeping sound throughout the game, the "Beep Ball". Our bases are 4 foot high padded cylinders that also have speakers that make a buzzing sound. Because there are varying degrees of blindness ALL players are required to wear an blindfold, thus only using their hearing to play the game. See rules of the game for more details.

The Comets are a 501(c)3 organization.

2020 Bolingbrook Beep Baseball Bash

Cancelled Due to Covid-19 pandemic

Dear Friends,

It's with regret that I inform you the 2020 Bolingbrook Beep Ball Bash has been cancelled due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

The Illinois Governor recently extended the stay at home order until June 1.

All indications are that the order will be further extended or if lifted, numerous restrictions will make the tourney difficult or impossible.

In addition, Bolingbrook Lions Club believes cancellation is necessary to ensure the health and safety of all involved....

Best Wishes,
Jim Patula
Beep Baseball Chairperson
Bolingbrook Lions Club
