Product Description

Can blind people really play Baseball? Absolutely! In fact, the National Beep Ball Association exists to help blind players do just that. Now, with this ball and a little creativity, you and all your friends can spread out over the diamond for nine innings of Summer fun. Don't worry if one or two can't exactly keep an eye on the ball. They will be able to easily hear it instead.

Our Beeping Softball is a little larger than a traditional softball, conforming to NBBA regulations for blind players. It's also a little softer, so as to help reduce the risk of injury. Best of all, when you flick the switch to the on position, the ball will beep constantly, so all players can follow it - by sight or sound.

This Beeping Softball is made of Japanese microfiber synthetic leather with a Soft PU core inside. It is an adaptive version of softball with a Rechargeable Beeper and speaker installed inside the core, an on/off switch and USB port.

But, aside from these small modifications, there's nothing unusual about this ball. When you hit it with a bat it sores with the best of them, and can have a nasty curve from a good pitcher. If you get hit it will hurt, so play responsibly.

So, if you want to play catch with your best friend, Scrub with a rag-tag gang of classmates, or a real game on a wide-open diamond, there's no better ball to insure everyone is included. The integrated beeper's built-in lithium-ion battery recharges through USB, so you don't need to worry about loose or missing parts - just plug your ball into the computer after the game. Then, on the next sunny day, turn on the ball, give it a good shake, and call the first pitcher. Batter up! It's anybody's game until the last swing of the bat ... and the final, breathless run Home!

Product Directions

Directions for the Beeping Softball From Future Aids, The Braille Superstore.

Our Beeping Softball is your ticket to playing softball or baseball - whether you have low vision or no vision. Below are a few tips to help you get started:

1. Locate the on/off switch on the ball and flick it to the ON position.
2. Now you can touch or shake the ball to make it beep.
3. The beep sound automatically turns off after 2 minutes if the ball is stationary.
4. To recharge the ball after a game, simply use the provided cable to connect the USB port to a computer/laptop or any other similar source. Charging time is only about 45 minutes!

Caution: because this ball contains electronics, treating it with care during game-play will extend its life. Try not to have the bat come into direct contact with the on/off switch or the USB port. Similarly, playing in the pouring rain may cause water or dirt to make its way into the USB port and damage the unit.
