Video Transcript

JESSICA MOORE: You're going to love this next story. A Bronx high school hosted a blind baseball game today. Monsignor Scanlan High played ball with the New York Lions in Throgs Neck.

The Lions play adaptive baseball. There are bells inside the ball, no pitcher, and players get audio cues to run the bases. Most players played the game before losing all or some of their sight, and they stayed in the game because they simply love it.

ALVIN SUAREZ: I also like the camaraderie with the teammates, the on-field communication. The rush I get when I get a hit. It's awesome.

JESSICA MOORE: Right now, only two blind teams exist, and they are both here in New York. Organizers are hoping to expand.
