Chad Airhart Organizes Republicans to Play the Iowa Reapers

Dallas County Recorder Chad Airhart has organized Dallas County Republican Officials to play the Iowa Reapers in a game of Beep Baseball. The amazing adaptive sport for the blind, which is played blindfolded, will put Iowa’s only Beep Baseball team, the Iowa Reapers agains Republican Dallas County elected officials. The National Beep Baseball Association was organized in 1976 for visually impaired adults to play baseball. The Iowa Reapers are the only organized team in Iowa.

This is a free event for all to spectate. Bring a lawn chair and something cold to drink and enjoy this adaptive version of America’s favorite past time. Those in attendance will witness the game of beep baseball and will certainly be delighted. They’ll witness blind athletes dive onto the ground to stop a beeping ball and run full speed toward the sound of a buzzing base to score a run. They’ll see desire, determination, teamwork and in many cases skilled performances of sightless players having fun in the midst of extreme competition. They will also see Dallas County elected republican officials blind folded playing against the Reapers.
