The sport of Blind Baseball was invented in Italy, 1994 to allow Visually Impaired and sighted platers to play together. The sport was introduced to the UK in 2019 and MBC is proud to be amongst the earliest clubs to add a VI team to our roster. VI players wear a blindfold during games so all levels of visual impairment can be catered for.
