  • Banner Outs. Combining the offensive skill of a Baseball Pitcher with the defensive agility of a Soccer Goalie, in a game that plays like a tennis match, but takes place on a sand volleyball court and is played with a frisbee. This three on three test of wills demands accuracy, guts, and glory as you strive to land strikes in the other teams realm.

    Designer: PST, Julien Schwab, Nick Cotz

    Personal Space Theatrics: PST is a non-profit theater company who believes that the audience is an active participant in any performance and that competitive sport is as full of drama, character and conflict as any piece of theater. Ethan Van Auken, playing as the Brick City Crimson, received the Original ‘Bee from the would-be West 6th Haze franchise in the spring of 2001. After founding the game, Ethan served as the East Coast Banner Outs League commissioner from 2005 until he moved to Los Angeles in 2007. He is known for utilizing a wide variety of strikes and the up-tempo style ofplay common in the sport’s infancy.

    Julien Schwab, playing as the Tyde of Long Beach, founded Banner Outs with longtime collaborator Van Auken in the summer of 2001. Schwab then founded the West Coast Banner Outs League which played at The Sands at Marina in Marina Del Rey, California. There he would go on to win 11 championships including the 2005 Banner Outs Banquet Tournament with his team, The Lucky Strikers. Schwab is a capable outfielder and a four time winner of the WCBOL Finesse Striker of the Year, relying heavily on accuracy and misdirection to land his strikes.
