Saturday July 8th
64th Annual Over-the-Line Tournament 7:30 a.m., Fiesta Island) San Diego’s summertime tradition, the Over-the-Line (OTL) Tournament, returns for its 64th year. Hosted by the Old Mission Bay Athletic Club (OMBAC), the annual tournament typically gathers about 1,200 teams from around the world to play Over-the-Line, a bat and ball sport first played in Mission Beach in the 1950s. The rules are simple: games last three innings, no one had to run bases and the main goal is to hit the ball “over the line” about 55 feet in front of the batter. Teams dress up in wacky costumes and bring tents, chairs, beer and hilarious signs to the beach for the carefree, daytime tournament. OTL goes down Saturday and Sunday, and comes back on July 15-16, same time, same place.
