Over the Line

A baseball & softball game

AGES 8-13

Over-the-line is a baseball variant popular on the beaches of southern California. The game is designed for two teams of three or four players each, allowing smaller groups to play, and requiring only a single plastic bat and tennis ball. Because the offensive team does not run bases, over-the-line is a more relaxed and social game. Google it!
