1 Hitting the Ball 7x4L1.jpg (23751 bytes)
  Each year hundreds of teams via for the "Over-The-Line®" championship that is played out in San Diego in the tournament sponsored by OMBAC® "The Old Mission Beach Athletic Club®". To most people OMBAC has the reputation of a bunch of hard partying beach rowdies... OK that's true but they also hold fund raisers such as the "Over-The-Line" and the "The Coming-Out" party that finance various charities. One very ambitious charity is to donate "Beach Access Wheelchairs" to all lifeguard stations on the west coast of the United States. Keep up the good work guys!
