Royals team up for adaptive field groundbreaking

The Royals and Royals Charities, in partnership with Variety Children’s Charity of Greater Kansas City and the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, today broke ground on an adaptive baseball field for children with disabilities.  This field will be at McCoy Park in Independence, Mo.  Funds for the project came from the 2012 MLB Gatorade All-Star Workout Day.  Current Royals Tim Collins and Aaron Crow were on hand along with alumni Jim Eisenreich and Dennis Leonard.

In the ’70s, the Royals experimented with a “beeper ball game” for blind/visually impared players. What ever became of that concept?

Thanks for the comment. The beeper ball game predates us….if we learn more about that, we’ll pass it on. The Royals continue to support the visually impaired…just this week, the club had a special tour.
