Europeans play water polo in the ocean, so organizers figured why not try it in California?
On Saturday, before the Cal-Presbyterian football game at AT&T Park, check out the water polo match in McCovey Cove. Cal alumni will take on the Olympic Club at 1 p.m. Players will wear wet suits and officials will do their job from a speedboat, but the rest of the game should be similar to what you’d see in a pool.
Full rosters are unavailable but the press release I received says that Miramonte graduate Michael Sharf will play, as well as a few other former U.S. national team members.
The game is free and spectators can watch from any public access point with a view of the cove. If you’re going to be at AT&T anyways for the Cal football game, I would highly recommend showing up early and checking out the polo match.
