Beer Can Baseball - Continued!

WHAT’S THE ORIGIN OF “BEER CAN BASEBALL” Two buddies – Tom Miller & Craig Fogel – were sitting around one evening enjoying a few beers, watching a baseball game. The game was a little slow, so they tried figuring out ways to make the game more exciting. They began trying to predict the outcome of each player’s at-bat. “We’d just take turns ‘playing’ either the batter or the pitcher,” says Miller, “trying to accurately predict the outcome of each player’s at-bat. If I played the batter and the batter got a base hit, I scored. If that batter struck out, Craig scored. It was that simple. “And it was exciting. Gave us bragging rights. Suddenly it didn’t really matter which TEAM won – what we cared about was who got the most predictions right. Which of us scored the most!”

SO WHERE DID THE NAME COME FROM? “Well, we stumbled on this while we were enjoying a few beers,” says Tom. “And we immediately realized we were on to something. So the next night we invited some buddies over. We all sat around playing the game over a few more beers. It was a lot of wild screaming and hollering – everybody loved it. Someone asked what we called it. Craig just blurted it out: ‘Beer Can Baseball.’ Perfect.”

HOW DO YOU KEEP SCORE? Each game contains chips for score-keeping. At the end of the game the player with the most chips wins.

IS THIS A DRINKING GAME? Beer Can Baseball is not a drinking game. Beer Can Baseball is not a gambling game.

Risks and challenges

As an emerging new sports-entertainment company, Pastime Sports, Ltd. is dedicated to providing the highest levels of quality for our valued new customers. With many more exciting new products in the pipeline, we look forward to a long and growing – and mutually beneficial – relationship with all of America’s great sports fans.

For 2013, we’ve chosen to “come out of the box” with our low-cost low-tech high-interaction game of Beer Can Baseball® which has already been play-tested and market-tested to great response.

We are entering our 2013 season with modest expectations and production forecasts. We’re also prepared to rapidly respond to far larger demand for items listed here, should that opportunity arise. Our network of USA-based blue-chip suppliers includes seven different parts manufacturers and printers with their own operations and networks spanning the globe.

Any risks, obviously, would include unexpected events which could disrupt our production calendars and 60-75 day delivery timeframes. This could include unforeseen transportation delays from our exclusive supplier network. Should a PSP supplier exit their own business due to economic conditions, we have researched and developed extended relationships with similar suppliers, thus allowing us to, we believe, shift our supply chain as needed.

Therefore we make each of our product commitments listed with the highest degree of confidence. In any case, should delivery prove impossible for any or all items, we would refund any and all monies received. Thanks for your confidence and support for Beer Can Baseball!®
