CUMMING, Ga. — Just behind home plate, elite teenage softball players from all over the country were lined up to watch one of their own try to play a sport that should have seemed familiar but was, of course, impossible.
One by one, they came to the plate and dug in. One by one, they swung and missed as the pitches that would have otherwise been routine went by them.
Standing somewhere beyond third base, Bryce Weiler was enjoying the spectacle, even though he couldn’t see any of it. Just like him, in this particular game on this particular night, the players trying to hit a softball were doing so without any vision.
