Blind Children ‘See’ With Ears In Special Orangevale Easter Egg Hunt
ORANGEVALE (CBS13) — Children in Orangevale with impaired vision took part in a special Easter egg hunt that required no looking, just hearing.
The children search for eggs that beep with their ears, an idea that started originally on the baseball field.
The National Beep Baseball Association adapts the sport for the blind with a special baseball that beeps so players can hear them.
The hunt even appeals to adults that have never participated in an Easter egg hunt, because of their visual impairment.
Everyone invited by the San Juan Unified School District was treated to dozens of donated plastic eggs and candy.
The Oddfellows Lodge and the AT&T Pioneers put on the event.
