The teams were sent out in vans to different locations and had to complete the first of five tasks. The first team to complete all five tasks won the competition. The tasks were:
A) To hit a fly ball beyond the infield grass at Dodger Stadium. Tommy Lasorda was there to provide assistance and, I'm told, a profane pep talk, as only Tommy can provide.
B) To have an artist in Venice Beach sketch a portrait of one of the players.
C) To teach a 10-minute lesson in a classroom at Torrance Elementary School.
D) To stand on a surfboard for at least five seconds in the Manhattan Beach water.
E) To find Jim Fox in Hollywood. A clue was posted near Bob Miller's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which the players also had to locate.
