Area athletes who are totally or partially visual impaired participated in the Beep Baseball game sponsored by the Savannah Lions Club at Grayson Stadium. The baseball used in the contest has a beeping mechanism in it, which helps the athletes (who are blindfolded) hear the ball advancing toward them.

"More than 2,500 tickets were donated by the Sand Gnat organization to different organizations," game director and Lion Club member, Gus Carellas said. "We sponsor these games annually. It is used to support the Lions Club athletic facility for the blind in Waycross."
