About the Comets: The Comets are comprised of Blind or Visually Impaired men and women from the Chhicagoland area who love to play beeep baseball. The team has been in existence since 1995. They are members of the National beep Baseball Association (NBBA) a legue comprised of teams from the United Staes, Canada & Taiwan.
Beep Baseball alson 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 bake a buzzing sound. Beacuse there are varying degrees of blindness ALL players are required to wear a blindfold, thus using their hearing to play the game. See rules of the game for more details or watch this quick video “This is Beep Baseball” to see an overview of how the game is played
The Comets are a 501(c)3 orginization.
