INDY THUNDER MISSION STATEMENT
The Indy Thunder Blind Beep Baseball team is an organization for the blind and visually impaired community who wish to participate in an organized sport.
Our desire is to enlighten and educate our community about the capacity and abilities of blind and visually impaired individuals.
We host the annual Indy Thunder Beep Baseball Bonanza tournament, participate in exhibition games and do public speaking in our community.
We actively seek the involvement of volunteers to work with individuals improving their mental and physical confidence and create a bond between the sighted and the visually impaired. Individuals to play competitively together as a team, organize fund raisers so that funds are available to cover the cost of the World Series and regional tournaments.
Our goal is that no blind or visually impaired person is to be denied the opportunity to play this sport even if they are economically challenged.
