Registration open through Tuesday 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” Saturday and Sunday 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 to 15. Teams consist of a captain, two players and an optional substitute.
Early entry has passed, but late entry will be available through Tuesday for $75, with t-shirts available while supplies last. Proceeds will benefit Craig Youth Baseball.
For more information on how to register, call Derek Cleverly at 970-629-8499.
