ESPN Will air 90 minute special on Beepball on Tuesday May 14!

In the summer of 2011, ESPN came to Indianapolis to visit the Beep Baseball World Series.  This was actually one of Boston’s best ever finishes as the Gades took 7th that year.  The Renegades actually had the biggest upset in the tournament as they knocked off the Austin Blackhawks TWICE.  Though the camera crews never made it to our fields we are excited to see a piece done on the sport we love.  We can’t wait to see the pice air on ESPN at 7:00 PM on tuesday May 14 on their program E60.  This is a 90 minute Season Finale!  Set those DVRs!

 

 

 

 

 

The Renegades at Fenway for Disability Awareness day!

picture of credentials given to the Renegades at Disability Awareness dayOn a cold, windy and rainy April 23 night at Fenway.  The Red Sox hosted Disability Awareness day.  The Renegades were invited to partake in the ceremony for the 2nd time in team history.  Second year player, Joe McCormick and 9 year veteran coach, Justin Manjourides represented the team on the field before the game.

During the game, Rob Weissman, Tim Syphers, Shayne Cantan, Justin and Joe all spoke to people about beep baseball in the concourse with the purpose to educate fans about the team and the game.

We have hopes that we can continue a relationship with the Red Sox in the future in some capacity so we can reach the baseball community about our exciting sport

For pictures of the event, you can see our album on our Renegades Facebook page.  The picture to the left is a shot of Coach Rob’s credentials that got us into the stadium early to work the concourse.

Rookie, Tim Syphers was quoted after the event as saying this was an amazing event that he had fun at.  As someone who had recently lost his sight, he is very excited to be able to be a part of beep baseball and the Boston Renegades.  He never thought he would be able to play sports again.  That is a HUGE part of what the Renegades are all about…Opportunity!
