Renegades work with Kids and teach them the game

On July 20th, the Boston Renegades took a crew into Newton to work at the NAPVI conference (The National Association for Parents of Children with Visual Impairments).  The weather was hot and the event was held indoors.  After all, this is an adaptive sport.  Rob Weissman, Bryan Grillo, Ron Cochran, Kara Peters, Calista Weissman were joined by Aqil Sajjad, Damon Graff, Tim Syphers, Joe McCormick, Guy Zuccarello and his son, Henry.  We spent about 2 hours with the kids showing them the ball, the base and showing them to hit.  We worked with kids as young as 5 years old and as old as 15.  Some of the kids were from Texas, New York and many from the Boston area.  The kid favorite was when we took the speaker out of the ball and Ron threw batting practice to the kids.  Who says you can’t play ball indoors?  We have hopes as these kids get older they will consider playing beep baseball for a team near them!  See our photo album of the event on our facebook page
