Beep Baseball also known as Beep Ball is similar to traditional baseball, with some modifications. we use a modified 16 inch softball with a rechargeable battery and speaker built in that emits a beeping sound throughout the game, the “Beep Ball”. Our Bases are 4 foot high padded cylinders that also have speakers that bake a buzzing sound.
