“There are so many great organizations out there waiting to help people who have lost their vision. I’m glad MindsEye makes a point of connecting listeners to them.” - Rita, retired accessibility instructor

On Saturday, May 14th, MindsEye supporters gathered at the Infield II of Busch Stadium at Ballpark Village for the second annual Vision for the Game. The day featured a ceremony to honor individuals who have supported blind athletics and the game of beepball and a live beepball demonstration.
