    Home Run Plastics for: Major League and Grand Slam and (Big Inning not shown).

    U.S.$65 -00 + $6.00 postage. = $71.00

    I need to sell 25 to get costs covered then I am probably finished.

    Indicate on PM the game you want the plastic for.

    PM me if interested.

    Hi Steve, Do you have any more home run plastic for Williams 1963 Major League Baseball? Thanks, Jerry

    Hi Jerry,

    Thanks for the pin mail. Hope you like your new plastic for your Major League game. I think this batch came out well.

    I got 1 of these babies from Steve in today, check out how much better it ended up! It's a really nice repro, if you need one now's your chance! BTW, mine had the wrong one on it, someone had already replaced it once...

    Looks great! Which one did yours have? I need one for a Pinch Hitter. Shay has it but it's not cheap.

    That's my old one in the picture, not sure what it was off of but it didn't have the arrows, somebody tried to draw them in.

    Oh yeah, duh. Sorry, it was right there in front of me. Just wishful thinking it was going to be the one I needed.

    Ron,
    It is from the 1963 novelty version called the "Big Inning".

    It has no backlit lights as was not a feature of this game. Otherwise very similar to the 63 Major League plastic target.

    When I researched what to make I went through all the games that had the target. See the topic linked. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/who-wants-major-league-grand-slam-big-inning-target-plastics

    Happy you like it. Still have a few left.

    Found this old thread and realize this may be a complete shot in the dark, but Steve, by chance do you (or anyone else out there) still have a plastic for a ‘63 Williams Major League you’re willing to sell? I’m a Pinside newbie trying to breathe new life into my beloved game. Thanks in advance.

    If I can get 5 definite requests I will make another batch.

    There is a fair investment of materials that I may never get
    recompensed if less.

    I'll buy one Steve. My son just picked up a '63 missing the plastic and the front rail.

    That’s two. Another three and I will invest in another ten.

    Awesome guys, and thanks a ton Steve for being game for giving this a shot!

    Hi Steve,

    I'll take one of the Home Run plastics. Mine is warped from a too hot bulb.

    That's three now. Need two more and I will get the furnace lit.

    Bumping...hoping for a home run in the bottom of the ninth

    Bump for the pitch-n-bat owners out there. If you need a new home run plastic for Major League, Grand Slam, or Big Inning this is your chance. Steve is willing to make a batch of them if we get two more folks interested. He does a fantastic job!

    I am back in town and will make another batch. Got to keep these games operating.

    Need to get materials including overlays made. I will confirm when available but no later than early November.

    Steve and all,

    The bat lever assembly for my ‘63 Major League was replaced at some point with a big button. Do any of you know of a source for a bat assembly like this (I believe from Steve’s table elsewhere it is part B-5625)? I realize that this is a plastics thread but figured I’d ask here since maybe others are reworking their pitch and bat games as well.

    Also—Steve—just re-read your amazing restoration thread on this game from a few years back—wow, thanks for all the work you did to document that so well!

    I saw this ad on Pinball Classifieds and I believe this is what you are describing.

    Good Luck.

    I have a friend that is making me a replacement for my Pinch Hitter Deluxe. Let me know if you or anyone else needs one i can ask him to run extras. Picture is of my bacon melted one and a cardboard printout to test fitness. Finished product will be printed on plastic by my friend who is a pinball fan and owns a large print graphic company.

    mmm...crispy. As a prototype is a good start.

    It only takes moments so work on the lettering and get the HOME R.. closure using the text software.

    May I suggest PETG as a plastic probably 0.060" thick and it has good impact strength.

    Lastly look at your game base color and make the white an off white to get it closer the game white parts.

    Nice addition to the parts we need.

    Hey there! Got a moment?
