SoCal Beep Baseball Association (SCBBA) is a nonprofit that was founded in January 2018 by Darren Keepers in South Pasadena, California. SCBBA was created to provide Beep Baseball opportunities for blind and visually impaired youth, 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. SCBBA 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 Association 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.
