NYC Hear The Ball will provide components of education and awareness about a sport, Beep Baseball, that benefits those with vision disabilities. At this event the Long Island Bombers will compete against the New Jersey Lightning.

Beep Baseball is an adapted version of our national pastime, and with the beep of a ball and buzz of a base it enables athletes with vision disabilities to enjoy team competition. At this event spectators will witness athletic individuals who conquer their challenges and rely on the abilities that lie within. All are welcome and following the game there will be the opportunity to try out the sport of beep baseball.

Know Before You Go

Ice Skating RinksLasker Rink (Temporarily Closed)

Lasker Rink is closed due to a refrigeration malfunction. Parks is trying to repair the rink's concrete slab and valves to identify and fix the source of the leak, in the hope of reopening the rink to the public later this season. In the meantime, the Trump Organization along with NYC Parks will work with the community and other area rinks to try to accommodate hockey and skating groups who call Lasker Rink home. Refunds will also be issued to any organizations who reserved and paid for use of the rink during the time that it will be closed.
