This position calls for an athlete looking to be more than a volunteer. Our pitchers are considered players and leaders of our beep baseball teams. In this adapted form of baseball for the blind, pitchers pitch to their own batters, so learning each player's swing is key to making solid contact.
As a volunteer, you will assist visually impaired batters with moving around the field and getting set up in the batters box. As a player, you will have fun and pitch!
