BY ATTENDING AND/OR PARTICIPATING IN THE EVENT, HOLDER, ON HIS/HER OWN BEHALF AND ON BEHALF OF MINOR(S), IS DEEMED TO HAVE GIVEN A FULL RELEASE OF LIABILITY TO THE RELEASED PARTIES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
IF MINOR(S) IS/ARE ACCOMPANYING HOLDER TO THE EVENT, HOLDER IS DEEMED TO HAVE GIVEN ALL OF THE FOREGOING GRANTS OF RIGHTS, RELEASES AND WAIVERS ON BEHALF OF SUCH MINOR(S) AS THEIR PARENT OR GUARDIAN OR AS THE AUTHORIZED AGENT OF THEIR PARENT OR GUARDIAN.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, Holder shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Released Parties from and against any and all demands, suits, claims, costs (including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses), expenses and liability arising out of, incidental to or related in any way to (i) Holder's and/or Minor(s)' attendance at, observation of, and/or participation in the Event, (ii) Holder's and/or Minor(s)' acts or omissions, or (iii) Holder's breach of any of the terms, conditions or representations made in the Agreement.

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 and/or those of Minor(s) or the Event, a telephone call to MLBP 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 and/or those of Minor(s), Holder's and/or Minor(s)' participation in, attendance at, and/or observation of the Event, the Agreement, and any related dealings between them, including, without limitation, claims of bodily injury or property damage arising out of Holder's and/or Minor(s)' attendance at and/or participation in the Event ("Arbitration Claims"), except for Arbitration Claims concerning the validity, scope or enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement, through BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION.
In any Arbitration Claim to be resolved by arbitration, neither Holder nor the MLB Entities shall 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 shall not be available or shall 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.
The arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the International Centre for Dispute Resolution ("ICDR") Procedures, before a single arbitrator who shall be a lawyer with at least fifteen (15) years of experience in general commercial or contractual disputes. The arbitrator shall be selected by mutual agreement of the Parties, or, if the Parties cannot agree, within thirty (30) days of the date of the Notice of Arbitration, then by striking from a list of arbitrators supplied by ICDR. The place of the arbitration shall be Monterrey, Mexico. The language of the arbitration shall be English. The arbitrator shall apply the laws of New York (without regard to conflicts of law rules to the extent that such rules would require the application of the laws of another jurisdiction) and the Parties agreed evidentiary rules (or the ICDR applicable rules in the absence of agreement amongst the Parties) in making a decision. The arbitrator shall have no authority to award punitive, exemplary, or other monetary damages not measured by the prevailing Party's actual damages, except as may be required by statute.
The MLB Entities shall be responsible for paying all administrative costs of the arbitration other than the amount of filing fees Holder may incur. Notwithstanding any other provision herein, Holder and the MLB Entities may seek relief for Arbitration Claims in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction. In addition, Holder and the MLB Entities each may exercise any lawful rights to seek provisional remedies in a court of competent jurisdiction, without waiving the right to arbitrate by doing so. Notwithstanding any other provision of the 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 shall survive the termination of the 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 fifteen (15) days after the date of the Event. You must send your request to: Major League Baseball, Attn: Legal Department, Re: Estadio de Beisbol Ticket 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 Estadio de Beisbol Ticket." If you exercise the right to reject arbitration, the other terms of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect as if you had not rejected arbitration.
Prior to bringing a claim under this Arbitration Agreement, the Claimant shall give the other party or parties written notice of the Arbitration Claim (a "Claim Notice") and a reasonable opportunity, not less than 30 days, to resolve the Arbitration 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: Estadio de Beisbol Ticket 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 Arbitration 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 Arbitration 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 THE EVENT WITH THE MINOR(S).
Retain possession of this ticket until the game has been played. This ticket cannot be replaced if lost, stolen or destroyed.
This ticket is good only for this particular Event and no part of the purchase price shall be refunded by reason of the failure of Holder to use it for this Event.
Should the game not progress to or beyond a point of play constituting a regulation game under Official Baseball Rule 4.10 (a "Regulation Game"), the MLB Entities shall determine in their sole discretion whether any refunds shall be issued and post such decision on the Event website. Should the game progress to or beyond a point of play constituting a Regulation Game, no refunds shall be issued.
