Pinball-Style Baseball Action
With a pull of the spring-loaded handle, Baseball Under the Lights comes alive, bringing fast-moving, hard-hitting action to the whole family. Fun for baseball lovers of all ages, this game can be played in teams or alone.
Ideal for family gatherings, vacations, and office parties, this beautifully displayed game features pinball-style play. Pull back on the handle to release one of the metal balls onto the game board, and then start swinging away. The board contains numerous pockets for singles, doubles, triples, and outs. There are even two ramps to launch the ball into the high-scoring homerun chutes.
Track Your Ballgame
Just as in major-league baseball, Baseball Under the Lights gives you multiple options of keeping score. The real working scoreboard and five metal pegs on the board allow players to record innings, outs, and base runners. You can also use the included scorebook to write down your statistics and record each play -- just like the real ballpark.
Ballpark Board Design
Heirloom-quality all-wood board construction makes this game suitable for display year-round. Adorned with old-style advertising graphics on the outfield walls and four pennant flags, Baseball Under the Lights captures that nostalgic old-time ballpark feel. It also features brightly colored signs that label single, double, and triple hits, as well as raised bumpers that direct errant balls into the foul pockets.
To capture the realistic feel of nighttime play, two stadium lights illuminate the board. Each light requires three AA batteries (not included).
The board measures 22 by 23 inches (L x W) and fits on most tabletops.

Top Customer Reviews
Fun with a group.
Uses no power, if you decide not to use lights.
Simple to repair/adjust.
Nice retro look.
Cons: Poor quality control.
Scoring board is a basic score wheel that is easily disturbed by normal game movement.
No adjustable leveling feet included.
Nice pitch and bat type game the only one I know of in this price range, however for the price it should be much better.
The game requires being properly leveled in order for the ball to return properly. The bat mechanism is
very crude, and may require adjustment to your preference. Luckily all these things are easily fixed.
The shooters rod, is a simple rod with rubber nubs at the front and back. Very cheap looking - I replaced it with a polished chrome sink lift rod, it looks like a proper pinball shooters rod now. You can reuse the existing rubber nub on the sink lift rod. The shooters rod is held in place by a collar and set screw, so replacement is simple.
The bat mechanism is accessed by removing all the small screws on the back of the game, the bat height above the play field is adjusted via repositioning the wooden spacer block which is held in place by two screws. The spring can also be adjusted to add more tension if required.
You can easily adjust the level or play field pitch on the game by adding in spacers (metal washers) as required to the rear wooden "legs". The washers go between the leg and the game bottom. I did not have to adjust the front although the same concept could be applied there using washers and small wood screws with felt pads.
