Sure to thrill even the most diehard baseball fan, Ballpark Classics is the most realistic tabletop baseball game every made. From its turf-like felt playing field to the scoreboard overlooking the diamond, Ballpark Classics goes the extra mile, creating a masterful game that combines timeless baseball strategy with foosball-like action. As any baseball fan will acknowledge, the game starts with pitching: Player one begins by dropping a steel baseball into the pitching pipe, and then squeezes it with his or her thumb or fingers. By changing your finger placement and adjusting the force, you can throw fastballs, curves, changeups, sliders, and even create your own pitches. It's easy to do but challenging to perfect--just like real baseball. Batting, on the other hand, is all about timing, bat speed, and getting inside the pitcher's head. Swing on time and you'll find yourself rounding the bases. Swing over the ball and you'll head back to the dugout. The game is so realistic that you can even get called out on a check swing.
Perhaps the coolest part about Ballpark Classics, however, is the authentic ballpark setting. The body is made of fine, precisely crafted hardwoods, with a nonwoven fabric playing field that looks just like the turf at your favorite ballpark. The scale is just as authentic, with a design that supports the dimensions of your favorite parks (the game comes with a default ballpark, but other MLB ballparks, called Parkpacks, are also available). And the game itself is precision-engineered to use gravity, physics, and friction to create an amazing baseball experience that needs no batteries or electricity. Pitching, hitting, walks, strikeouts, home runs, and situational strategies--it's all there except for the smell of freshly mowed grass.
Playable alone, head to head, or with teams, each Ballpark Classics game takes about 20 minutes for a full nine. Whether you're a baseball purist, a casual fan, or a serious gamer, Ballpark Classics is a terrific choice. The game, which is officially licensed by Major League Baseball, comes with 30-plus MLB mini felt pennants for stadium customization. The game measures 34 by 8 by 30 inches (W x H x D) and requires some assembly.
