I acknowledge that if I believe conditions are unsafe in any way, I/my child will immediately cease participation in the Event. I fully understand that participation in the Event may involve bodily injury, illness, or property damage, including permanent disability, paralysis, and death, which may be caused by my/my child’s own actions or inactions, those participating in the Event (directly or indirectly), the conditions in which the Event takes place, and the negligence of MLB or any Event Person (as each is defined below).

The foregoing shall constitute a release and waiver of all liability, claims, demands, losses, or damages of whatever kind or nature, either in law or in equity, on my/my child’s account arising from participation in the Event.

By signing below and/or participating in the Event, I hereby grant MLB and the Event Persons the irrevocable, non-exclusive, transferable, sublicensable and assignable right to depict, without any additional consideration, and in perpetuity, in any and all media now or hereafter known, my/my child’s likeness, image, name, words, voice and/or biographical information (collectively, “Images”) in photographic or other works for purposes of promoting, advertising, or marketing the Event and current or future events related to baseball and/or the Events, and I agree that such Images may be used by MLB and/or the Event Persons for all such purposes. In addition, in connection with the use of the Images, I hereby release and waive any action or cause of action that I/my child may assert in connection with the use of the Images including, but not limited to, any claims which I have/my child has or may have for invasion of privacy, defamation, violation of any right of publicity, 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 the Images appear.

I further agree that by signing belowand/or participating in the Event, I hereby forever release, discharge and covenant not to sue MLB and/or the Event Persons, and I will indemnify and defend MLB and the Event Persons from and against any and all liability arising from my/my child’s participation in the Event.  I hereby sign this Release for myself/my child, my/my child’s personal representatives, assigns, heirs, next of kin and any other person or entity that may be entitled to make such a claim on my/my child’s behalf. I further agree that if, despite this Release, including the waiver of liability and assumption of risk, I, or anyone on my/my child’s behalf, makes a claim against MLB and/or any MLB Person, I will indemnify, save, and hold harmless each of such persons and/or entities from any claim, loss, liability, damage, or cost which may incur as a result of such claim, including attorneys’ fees incurred by any such persons or entities defending against such claims.

This Release shall be governed by the laws of the laws of England and Wales, without regard to applicable conflicts of laws provisions or the principles of comity. I expressly waive and relinquish any and all rights or benefits that I/my child may now have, or in the future may have as to the matters released herein.  This Release is intended to cover all disputes, controversies or claims (“Claims”) in connection with and/or arising out of my/my child’s participation in the Event.  Should any Claims be deemed not to be covered by this Release, I agree that all such Claims that I wish to pursue (including any question regarding its existence, validity, formation or termination): (i) must be brought against Major League Baseball Europe, Ltd. only and may not be brought against any other MLB entity or MLB Person and (ii) must be brought on an individual basis only through confidential, final and binding arbitration at the London Court of International Arbitration (“LCIA”), in London, England before a private and impartial arbitrator conducted in accordance with the rules of the LCIA.  I hereby waive my right to commence, or be a party to, any class or collective claims or to bring jointly with any other person any claim against MLB or any MLB Person. I agree that the arbitrator shall have the power to award any remedies, including attorneys’ fees and costs, available under applicable law.
