WCB Strong!

Great convention this year! Special thanks to all the volunteers near and far and Hotel Murano in Tacoma. Soon we will have audio recordings posted. Keep checking this site.

Now is time to consider which committees your would like to serve to make a difference in 2015.

Seattle's first baseball team for the blind has a new home at Rainier Beach High

Dino Sanchez at the plate

The Sluggers scrimmaged at their new location Saturday, July 26. Dino's team trumped Telea's team 6 to 3. The infield offers soft AstroTurf and the dugouts are shaded. Several Metro buses stop just outside the school entrance. Rainier Beach High School is located at 8815 S. Seward Park Ave. and is easy walking distance from the Rainier Beach Lite Rail Station: a straight shot down Henderson.

Volunteers are needed: Sighted guides, base attendants, field attendants, base operator, stat keeper, drivers, sports photographers are needed. You can also help by sharing this information with friends and family. If interested in taking a turn at bat or trying out for the team, contact Kevin Daniel.
