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.

Poor instructions often lead to poor reviews. I like to look at the instructions of a product as an extension of manufacturer's customer service. "I need help putting this product together, so please give me something that makes perfect sense so I do not have to ask for help." I do not know what was better, the easy to follow and understand step by step written instructions, or the VERY clear visual pictures. Ballpark Classics met me at my level and made very clear the process of assembly.
I spread out all the neatly organized parts on the floor and began assembly, with the help of my 3 year old. EVERYTHING went together exactly as described.......the first time. My assembly time was just a touch over 20 minutes, but there was a part of me that did not want it to end. It was a fun process and made me feel just little like Ray Kinsella from that ever so famous movie. I got caught up in the moment and looked at my daughter and said, "If you build it, they will come." With a smile on my face and a confused look on hers, we exchanged high fives just like we do every time she finishes a task successfully. Just looking at this ball field was pleasing in itself. It could not get more realistic in design and detail than
what Ballpark Classics has put together.
PLAYS EVEN BETTER THAN IT LOOKS
Keep in mind, my first time playing this game was with my daughter....who is 3. Her first pitch was a strike and so my first swing. What a great game for teaching yourself, and your kids hand/eye coordination. After a little while we both got the hang of it and things got pretty exciting.Read more ›
As the marbles are hit and filter down, it's hard to get them to fall into the small tin provided to catch them. As you play the game shifts and the tin gets out of alignment so you inevitably have them rolling all over the places. I think there is a way to remedy this, but we haven't looked into it closely enough.
This was a big hit on Christmas Day, our son is a baseball fanatic. But since then he's not very interested. I have to guilt him to play with it. He's 7 and we don't have video games or watch much TV, so I can't imagine that it's too slow for him...all of his toys are. Maybe he's too young and he'll become more interested later
I realize this sounds like a bad review, but because this game is so incredibly beautiful and designed so well, I thought it was worth 5 stars and only wanted to knock it down 1 star for the other issues
It's been fun to play too.
The game arrived very well protected in custom double boxes and the fit and finish is excellent. I haven't noticed any significant wear on the parts (even though my 15-year old son tries to go downtown on every swing of the bat). It has appealed to all generations and even my non-baseball loving wife.
If you are a baseball fan, I highly recommend this game.

Love it. Well crafted, hard wood frame -- no cheap particle board or veneer. It's heavy to move. Vintage stickers go on outfield wall as advertisements give the whole ball field... Read morePublished 12 months ago by brett p.
