Smith County Sheriffs Play Ball in the Dark For Good Cause

Some Smith County law enforcers took their fight from the streets to the baseball field Saturday. And they played softball blindfolded.

The softball game was held at  Fun Forest Park to benefit the Lighthouse for the Blind, which helps people who are visually impaired.

Smith county sheriff deputies rivaled a team of people with visual disabilities. To level the playing field, the Sheriff's department wore blind folds.

Softballs, with beeping devices inside them, were also used to help players hit the ball

The sheriff's department won the  game. The final score was one to nothing. Lighthouse for the Blind says they're always taking donations to help the visually impaired. They say they also want to hold the softball event again, so people deterred by Saturday's rain will get a chance to come.
