Beep baseball team hosting Super Bowl party in Federal Way

Event is from 2-3:30 p.m. Feb. 4 at Scoreboard Bar and Grill in Federal Way.

The Seattle South King Sluggers beep baseball team will kick-off its sixth season with a Super Bowl party on Sunday, Feb. 4, at the Scoreboard Bar and Grill, 1200 S. 324th St. in Federal Way.

The party begins at 2 p.m. and ends just prior to the game at 3:30 p.m.

South King Council of the Blind, the founding sponsor for the beep baseball team, will present Rob Sides, Scoreboard Bar and Grill owner, with large print and braille menus.

“The purpose of events like this is, one, to raise awareness in the community, two, to crank up the team spirit, and, three, to have a good time,” SKB President Kevin Daniel said in a media release. “By raising awareness, I mean that we want to showcase what blind people can do and change out-dated perceptions.”

Beep baseball is a modified version of the traditional sport designed for blind or visually impaired players using an oversized softball that beeps to let the batter know it is approaching.

Seattle South King Sluggers formed in 2012 and has gone on to demonstrate the sport across the state and in Alaska. The Sluggers have attended the beep baseball World Series for the past three years. The annual game against the Seattle Police Department is in May.

The Seattle South King Sluggers are seeking a corporate team sponsor. The team would like to demonstrate the sport before a Mariners game and host the beep baseball world series in the Northwest.
