Registration still open for ‘over-the-line’ 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.

Local organizers are seeking as many teams as possible for three divisions: co-ed, women and youth ages 12 to 15. Teams consist of a captain, two players and an optional substitute. Demonstrations will be available at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Loudy-Simpson soccer fields for those unfamiliar with the game.

Early entry has passed, but late entry will be available until July 28 for $75, with t-shirts available while supplies last. Proceeds will benefit Craig Youth Baseball.
