DYERSVILLE, IA - The great game of baseball is full of stories about blind umpires, real and otherwise. It`s also a game that`s full of dreams for those who dare to 'go the distance.'
Robert Smith has been blind from birth, but that has never affected his vision, his dream, to inspire young people who also have disabilities. Recently, he attended opening day at Iowa`s original Field of Dreams.
"What if you were the first blind person to throw out the first pitch and sing the national anthem at every major and minor league stadium?"
Now, he hopes to show them that when you believe the impossible, sometimes the incredible comes true.
