On Saturday, July 14, 2012, the Ertz Law Group participated in our 3rd straight year of San Diego’s OTL Tournament created and sponsored by the Old Mission Beach Athletic Club [OMBAC].
Signing Up on Cinco de Mayo
Why do they make these sign-ups so early?! At 7:00 a.m. a line forms from the Beachcomber in South Mission Beach. Luckily we were able to make a lot of friends in line while wearing our “Got Warrants?”® Gear. Once our registration was completed, we got to enjoy the late morning with new friends from OMBAC.
Because we are usually in Court by 8:00 a.m. we were bright-eyed and bushy tailed for the festivities. One of the things that we like most about the OMBAC organizers of this event is that they have high respect for our country and its military. We were proud to be present during the presentation of our flag by a United States Marine Corps color guard.
The OTL Tournament is one of the last remaining all day beach parties in San Diego. There were even members of the press and one of our attorneys, Marcus E. DeBose was interviewed regarding the event.

Once the interviews are conducted and the flag is flowing it was time to get down to business and play some Over the Line (OTL)!
The rules: OTL is a form of 3 on 3 “beach softball.” There are no “bases” and no running or sliding. Teams pitch to their own teammates and the defense must try to catch any balls that are hit “Over The Line.” The “line” is about 55 feet away. This year we entered a men’s team and a women’s team. They played all 4 games like champions.
When the games were over for the day that’s when the fun really began! We brought along tons of “Got Warrants?”® Gear to give away and enjoyed a great afternoon with friends both new and old.
