    It is often said that hitting a baseball is one of the most difficult feats in all of sports. So just imagine hitting a baseball totally blind. It sounds impossible, but that is exactly what happens in beep baseball.

    Players are partially or totally visually-impaired, so the softball-size ball emits a loud beeping sound, allowing batters to time the swing and connect, and for fielders to find the ball.

    While San Francisco cheers the Giants' capture of the Major League World Championship this past week, Mark Strassmann introduces you to another team of champs, at the National Beep Baseball Association's World Series.

    COVER STORY: The debate over Common Core | Watch Video
    The goal of helping kids learn more in the classroom is something on which everyone can agree. But here's a hard lesson: It's not that easy to figure out HOW to improve education.

    The Common Core is now at the core of a heated national controversy. Launched by state officials in 2009, the Core outlines what students must master at every grade level. The bar is high: Kindergartners, for example, should be able to "Count to 100 by ones and by tens." The curriculum was later backed by the federal government, which offered grant money to any state signing on; forty-five states and the District of Columbia did so.

    But now some states are re-thinking their approach. Conservatives have branded the Core as the federal government "overreaching" into state affairs; Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is suing the White House over it. And in New York -- one of the bluest of states -- an estimated 60,000 students have now opted out of Common Core testing.

    So what grade is the Common Core receiving from educators and parents? Jan Crawford reports.
