2016 Beep Baseball season saw regional growth

Currently, we have three teams in Washington State: The Spokane Lion Pride, the Seattle South King Sluggers, and the Tacoma Tide. Teams may be forming in the Tri-Cities, Vancouver, B.C., and Anchorage, Alaska. If you are interested in playing or volunteering, contact your local chapter.
