Learn how beep baseballs are made as well as about the surprising connection between beep baseball and the phone company when hosts Nancy and Peter Torpey talk with John Cruz, lead volunteer for the group that assembles beep baseball equipment, and J Kelly, chapter president of the Colorado Legacy West Pioneers. We’ll also talk about how the game is played.
John and Nancy — Thank you again for a fun and fascinating interview about how you make the equipment for beep baseball players worldwide. Thanks especially for your patience when it turned out we needed to repeat it. The episode of Eyes On Success based on that interview officially airs tomorrow (see links below). We hope you like it. If you do, please feel free to post a link to it and/or otherwise share it with anybody you think might be interested. We only ask that you use the link www.EyesOnSuccess.net/eos_2304_podcast.mp3 so we can track our downloads.

Beep Ball 9/23/2022
Last Friday, our Beep Ball Volunteers were awarded the Denver 7 Everyday Hero award for their extra efforts to produce beepballs throughout the pandemic when supply chains were broken, and parts were delayed. I just got word that their episode will be broadcast on Oct 2nd during the 10 pm newscast. It will be repeated during most Monday morning newscasts and the following Saturday.
The story will also be available to watch online sometime Monday morning after it airs on Sunday.
We thought you might enjoy tuning in and watching some CTBL/Pioneer Volunteers be honored.
Many thanks to Denver 7 for this award and the special morning!

Colorado Talking Book Library
The Beepball group meets on Fridays from 8am to 10:30am at the Colorado Talking Book Library located at 180 Sheridan Blvd, Denver, CO 80226. They work on different parts of the beepball to complete them for sale. New volunteers are always welcome!
Help Needed: Legacy West Pioneers, Colorado Chapter, Pioneer members are the only volunteering organization that makes the beeping balls, beeping eggs and beeping bases, and we are in need of help! You do not need to have any special background – just a willingness to help. We will train you for the work that needs to be done.
