Major League Baseball (MLB) has shown great commitment to web site accessibility throughout the 2010 season. As the World Series begins this week, the American Council of the Blind (ACB) and its affiliates in Massachusetts and California continue to work with MLB on the accessibility of mlb.com and the team sites. The feedback of baseball fans with visual impairments is essential to that effort.
If you are a blind baseball fan, we hope you can spend some time on mlb.com and the team sites during the World Series. If you do, please share your experiences with ACB’s MLB accessibility team. Comments can be sent using the Contact page of this website, or by sending an email to Bay State Council of the Blind representative Brian Charlson. Email Brian Charlson.
