    Our story

    Darren Keepers smiles while holding a bat over his right shoulder.SoCal Beep Baseball (SCBB) is a nonprofit startup that was founded in January 2018 by Darren Keepers in South Pasadena, California. SCBB was created to provide athletic experiences for blind and visually impaired teens, adults and military veterans throughout Southern California.

    Created in the 1960’s and formed into a league in 1976, Beep Baseball is a version of America’s past time that has been adapted for the blind and visually impaired. SCBB aims to promote the sport and serve the SoCal visually impaired community through the love of baseball.

    The athletic opportunities offered through SoCal Beep Baseball give those with visual impairments the chance to improve independence by participating in sports without restrictions. Through these activities and competition, people who are blind and visually impaired will enjoy baseball just like those with full sight.

    What we currently offer

    SoCal Beep Baseball currently supports the only registered Beep Baseball team in Southern California and is leading the charge to expand the game throughout the region by adding several more teams.

    All SCBB teams will be registered with the National Beep Baseball Association and will compete in sanctioned tournaments.
