WHO: Old Mission Beach Athletic Club (OMBAC)
WHAT: 55th Annual World Championship Over-The-Line (OTL) Tournament, July 2008. A form of softball, limited to 1,200 teams of three persons each, playing almost 2,400 games in two weekends with 52,000 expected to attend.
WHEN: 2008 Saturday, July 12th, Sunday, July 13th & Saturday, July 19th, and Sunday, July 20th, when quarter finalists take the courts. Play is from 7:30 a.m. to dusk.
WHERE: Fiesta Island on Mission Bay, San Diego, CA.
WHY: OTL serves as the primary fundraising source for OMBAC’s year-round charitable programs. OTL is more than "beer, babes and bats on the beach." With worldwide competition, OTL began as a San Diego original, played by men and women from 18 to 80 years-old. It is one of the last pure Southern California traditions left untouched by commercialism.
New Bus Routes The OTL provides bus transportation onto Fiesta Island. There is a bus pick up across from the Bahia and also one now in Linda Vista and NOT AT MISSION BAY HIGH SCHOOL.
