WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY

By using this ticket, by attending or observing this Event or by attending, observing or participating in any attractions offered in connection with the Event ("Attractions"), Holder, on behalf of himself/herself and any minor(s) accompanying Holder, acknowledges and assumes all risks and dangers associated with (i) being a spectator before, during, and after a baseball game (including all warm-ups, practices, pre-game, post-game and between-inning activities, promotions and competitions) and (ii) attending, observing and participating in the Event or any Attractions, in each case, whether any such risk or danger occurs prior to, during or subsequent thereto, including specifically (but not exclusively) the danger of being injured by thrown bats; bat fragments; thrown or batted balls; thrown, dropped, or launched items; projectiles; persons; animals; other hazards or distractions; and any incidents or accidents associated with crowds of people or the negligence or misconduct of other spectators.

Holder further releases the Entities from and against any and all claims which Holder or any minor(s) accompanying Holder has or may have for invasion of privacy, defamation, violation of any right of publicity, right of privacy or any other cause of action arising out of the production, reproduction, distribution, transmission, publication, public performance, broadcast or exhibition of advertisements, promotions, content, programs and/or materials in which recordings or photographs of Holder or any minor(s) accompanying Holder from the Event or the Attractions appear.

IF HOLDER DOES NOT WISH TO OR IS NOT AUTHORIZED TO GRANT SUCH RIGHTS, RELEASES AND WAIVERS ON BEHALF OF THE ACCOMPANIED MINOR(S), HOLDER SHOULD IMMEDIATELY LEAVE PETCO PARK OR THE APPLICABLE EVENT VENUE WITH THE MINOR(S).

ENTERING THE PLAYING FIELD, DISRUPTING A GAME AND/OR ATTEMPTING ANY PHYSICAL CONTACT WITH A GAME PARTICIPANT IS A CRIME PUNISHABLE BY FINE AND/OR IMPRISONMENT. VIOLATORS MAY BE PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW. SMOKING IS PROHIBITED AT PETCO PARK AND INSIDE THE APPLICABLE EVENT VENUE.

MANDATORY ARBITRATION AGREEMENT & CLASS ACTION WAIVER ("ARBITRATION AGREEMENT")

The MLB Entities care deeply about maintaining good relationships with fans. If you have a problem with your ticket or the Event, a telephone call to customer service may resolve the matter quickly and amicably. Any dispute not resolved informally must be resolved in accordance with this Arbitration Agreement.

Unless prohibited by federal law, Holder and the MLB Entities agree to arbitrate any and all claims and disputes relating in any way to Holder's purchase or use of this ticket, Holder's attendance at the Event or any related activities, participating or observing Attractions, the Agreement, and any related dealings between them, including, without limitation, claims of bodily injury or property damage arising out of Holder's attendance at the Event and/or participation in the Attractions ("Claims"), except for Claims concerning the validity, scope or enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement, through BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION. This Arbitration Agreement involves interstate commerce and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16 ("FAA"), and not by state law.

In any Claim to be resolved by arbitration, neither Holder nor the MLB Entities will be able to have a court or jury trial or participate in a class action or class arbitration. Other rights that Holder and the MLB Entities would have in court will not be available or will be more limited in arbitration, including the right to appeal. Holder and the MLB Entities each understand and agree that by requiring each other to resolve all disputes through individual arbitration, WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A COURT OR JURY TRIAL. ALL DISPUTES SHALL BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION, REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY SIMILAR PROCEEDING. The arbitrator(s) may not consolidate the claims of multiple parties.

Arbitrations shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") pursuant to the applicable AAA rules in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated. You may obtain information about arbitration, arbitration procedures and fees from AAA by calling 800-778-7879 or visiting www.adr.org. If AAA is unable or unwilling to arbitrate a dispute, then the dispute may be referred to any other arbitration organization or arbitrator the parties both agree upon in writing or that is appointed pursuant to section 5 of the FAA. The arbitration shall take place in San Diego, California where the Event took place. The arbitrator shall be authorized to award any relief that would have been available in court, provided that the arbitrator's authority is limited to Holder and the MLB Entities alone, except as otherwise specifically stated herein. No arbitration decision will have any preclusive effect as to non-parties. The arbitrator's decision shall be final and binding. The parties agree that this Arbitration Agreement extends to any other parties involved in any Claims, including, but not limited to, minors accompanying Holder to the Event and the Released Parties. This Arbitration Agreement shall take precedence over the rules of the arbitration organization or arbitrator in the event of any conflict.

The MLB Entities will be responsible for paying all arbitration fees other than the amount of filing fees Holder would have incurred in the state or federal court where the Event took place, whichever is less. Notwithstanding any other provision herein, Holder and the MLB Entities may seek relief in a small claims court for Claims within its jurisdiction. In addition, Holder and the MLB Entities each may exercise any lawful rights to seek provisional remedies or self-help, without waiving the right to arbitrate by doing so. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if the foregoing class action waiver and prohibition against class arbitration is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, then this entire Arbitration Agreement shall be void. If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement other than the class action waiver and prohibition against class arbitration is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it shall not invalidate the remaining portions of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of this Agreement, the conclusion of the event, and/or the bankruptcy or insolvency of a party (to the extent permitted by applicable law).

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REJECT THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, BUT YOU MUST EXERCISE THIS RIGHT PROMPTLY. If you do not wish to be bound by this agreement to arbitrate, you must notify us by mailing a written opt-out notice, postmarked within seven (7) days after the date of the Event. You must send your request to: Major League Baseball, Attn: Legal Department, Re: ASG Arbitration, 245 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10167. The request must include your full name, address, account number, and the statement "I reject the Arbitration Agreement contained in my All-Star Ticket." If you exercise the right to reject arbitration, the other terms of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect as if you had not rejected arbitration.

Prior to initiating a lawsuit or an arbitration proceeding under this Arbitration Agreement, the Claimant shall give the other party or parties written notice of the Claim (a "Claim Notice") and a reasonable opportunity, not less than 30 days, to resolve the Claim. Any Claim Notice to one or more of the MLB Entities shall be sent by mail to Major League Baseball, Attn: Legal Department, Re: ASG Claim Notice, 245 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10167. Any Claim Notice must (a) identify the Claimant by name, address, email address, and telephone number; (b) explain the nature of the Claim and the relief demanded; and (c) be submitted only on behalf of the Claimant, and not on behalf of any other party. The Claimant must reasonably cooperate in providing any information about the Claim that the other party reasonably requests and must give the other party a reasonable opportunity to respond to the demand for relief.

IF MINOR(S) IS/ARE ACCOMPANYING HOLDER TO THE EVENT, HOLDER IS DEEMED TO HAVE AGREED TO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF SUCH MINOR(S) AS THEIR PARENT OR GUARDIAN OR AS THE AUTHORIZED AGENT OF THEIR PARENT OR GUARDIAN. IF HOLDER DOES NOT WISH TO OR IS NOT AUTHORIZED TO MAKE SUCH AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF THE ACCOMPANIED MINOR(S), HOLDER SHOULD IMMEDIATELY LEAVE PETCO PARK OR THE APPLICABLE EVENT VENUE WITH THE MINOR(S).
