A New Type of Kickball for the Visually Impaired

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff,"  an organization in Georgia brings the sport of kickball to the visually impaired. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Check out Beep Kickball.

The ball beeps, and the bases buzz.

Kick the ball and run to the buzz before the fielders find the beeping ball.

It's a simple concept that has big meaning for kids otherwise excluded from an important part of growing up.

"The sport itself, it gives the kids a lot of confidence," said Melissa Allen, co-founder of Cobb County Beep Kickball.
