The Old Mission Beach Athletic Club (OMBAC) is calling all players, beach-goers, and sports enthusiasts to the 66th Annual World Championship Over-the-Line (OTL) Tournament. Over 1,000 teams will hit the sand at sunrise on Saturday morning, July 13, with their bats, balls and most creative team names to kick-off 66 years of San Diego tradition. The first three game days will start promptly each morning at 7:30 a.m. and continue until sunset, concluding on Sunday afternoon, July 21, with the Men’s Open Championship. Games will be three innings only for the first weekend of the tournament and four innings during the second weekend. The tournament will follow a double-elimination format for all participating teams in all nine divisions.
This summertime staple draws teams from all over the world, but Over-the-Line originated right here in San Diego. The sport has grown dramatically from a few friends playing ball in the sand to an annual two-weekend tournament that attracts thousands of players and spectators.
