Tyler Beep Baseball Team Receives Special Honor

Some special East Texas athletes received a special honor Friday in Tyler.

The Tyler Tigers are going to the national Beep Baseball Association World Series August 1-7 in Columbus, Ohio. The Tigers are a team composed of blind and visually impaired employees and relatives of workers at Horizon Enterprises.

Before they left town, there was a pep rally thrown for them at the East Texas Lighthouse for the Blind. Tyler Mayor Joey Seeber proclaimed next week "Tyler Tigers Beep Baseball Week."

"Back in 1994, I said visually impaired people need to have more in life," Tyler Tigers founder and shortstop Larry Reed explains. "We started this team, and now we've played all over the United States."

The World Series continues next week, finishing up Sunday the 7th.
