Hi All,

I'm going to look at a "baseball" next week. There seems to be a problem where when a homer is scored, the player remains on third base (star rollover tays lit). I don't have the game or schematic in front of me. I'm assuming that the cause is a switch that's gapped to closely.

Could someone point me to what relay and or what switch to look at?

Thank you.

There are a few mechanical causes for a base to fail to clear including a magnetized armature on the base's interlock relay. More at:

Awesome thanks Mark!

My friend has a grand slam in my front hall closet I’m going to work on for him this winter and it has that issue. I also have “Baseball” I haven’t plugged in yet but will follow that procedure.

Both are great games I like the rollover version more than the scoop version cause the scoops feel like potholes for lining my shots.

Yup, was the interlock relay. The armatures needed to be cleaned.

Thanks
