Craig Sports Briefs for July 6, 2015: Over-the-line signups available for August tourney

As part of Moffat County Balloon Festival, Craig residents will be hosting a tournament of the game over-the-line Aug. 1 and 2 at Loudy-Simpson Park. Originally created by Old Mission Beach Athletic Club, over-the-line is a variation of bat and ball games like baseball and softball that involves three-person teams. Hitters do not run any bases, and the field consists of a triangle in place of home plate and a rectangle for fielders. For a full explanation of the setup and rules, visit http://www.ombac.org/over-the-line/otl-rules-of-the-game. Local organizers are seeking as many teams as possible for three divisions: co-ed, women and youth ages 12-15. Teams consist of a captain, two players and an optional substitute. Demonstrations will be available July 16 and 23 for those unfamiliar with the game. The cost is $60 to register by Friday, with players receiving a guaranteed t-shirt, hot dog and a beer garden ticket for ages 21 and older. Late entry will be available until July 28 for $75 with no tickets nor guarantee of shirts.
