We play ball! The sport of beep baseball has been around for decades. The Greater Cleveland Beepball League and the Cleveland Scrappers team are entering their 40th season. The softball we play with beeps and our bases buzz. We play the games we play for more than the thrill of recapturing our youth. We play the game because of what it allows us to do. The Cleveland Scrappers and the Greater Cleveland Beepball League for 40 years has enabled blind and visually impaired athletes the opportunity to engage in a competitive sport where we work as a team. Prior to playing beep baseball many of our players had never had the opportunity to play team sports where they are a factor and not a passive participant. We aim to provide opportunity and to change perceptions of what people who are blind and visually impaired have to contribute.
>This site will be our home for information and to show everyone what we are up to. It will take us some time to get everything we want to share posted so stay tuned. We will be providing information about the history of the Scrappers. We will post an archive about what we are up to and how you can get involved. Our team is a family, and we want to grow it.
Just because a person has a disability does not mean the game is over. You find a new way to play it. We want to show you those ways.
The Cleveland Scrappers is a 501(c)3 non-profit beep baseball team for the blind and visually impaire
