What is Blind KickBall?
Blind Kickball uses beeping balls and two bases that beep at random. The game is played with 2 teams of 5 people each. Each team member is blind-folded. The kicker places the beeping ball, kicks it, and then runs to the base that is beeping. The runner must reach the base before the ball is caught or stopped. If the runner does not reach the base before the ball is caught or stopped, that counts as one out. There are 3 outs per inning and 5 innings per game.
