Show and tell us about your cool old Pitch and Bat games. Let's see some pictures of these babies!

Make sure to check out these other cool topics when you get a chance such as pinball, gun/sub games, and mechanical games/toys as those are covered in these other cool threads:

Well I don't have pics but I did just play one at a friends house. They are really cool machines and both my kids (11 &13) enjoyed it too. Cool how the game still has appeal for the kids.

No pictures, but there is a 1965 Williams double play pitch n bat that will be mine when my grandmother passes. It has been in the basement since 1966, with around 20k plays total. Yes, all the cups work properly and will do the double plays.

#6 4 years ago

I have never owned a pitch and bat game but played many as a kid and have been tossing around the idea of getting one down the road.

Being a Williams fan I think that the 1973 Williams Upper Deck is a pretty cool one to have with the electronic sounds, 2 player capability, and the 2 tier deck for the possibility of getting the grand slam.

Wow...you guys have some nice pitch n bats! Pinnut....I love that 1960 williams deluxe official baseball!
Here's mine. I like the ramp that pops up and down...gives you a chance to get the Bullseye. Here's a old video where I just got it working....done a lot of changes since to make the curve ball work better. One of the more played games with kids come over!

Does this game really give you a slugging average and high score on the backglass?

Quoted from StevenP:

Yes. It's been quite a while since I've been able to beat the posted high score. It's neat because on of the baseballs on the backglass lights up with the text "New High Score." or something to that effect.

#12 4 years ago

Here's another Bullseye Baseball. The kids line up to play it, and don't even touch Twilight Zone. Bulls eyes are rare...only three of them so far. I have the smaller Bullseye template in my game. I think they made different sizes that Ops could change out. I wish I had the set. Love the game!

I have a 1960 Williams Official Baseball as well as 1972 Williams Line Drive. I repainted both cabinets to original graphics.
I had to repaint each and every player uniform, hat, and belt, on Official Baseball. The cabinet, when I bought it at a garage sale, was painted solid brown. I was able to recover the original graphics and cut stencils to restore the cabinet graphics to original. Although not my best cabinet repaint, I believe it would be commercially acceptable. Line Drive came out better.

Does anyone knows where to buy a bat for my Williams upperdeck , it just broke today playing with my son .

#16 4 years ago

Marco specialties have a slugfest bat that should fit.

#17 4 years ago

I checked there and they don't have any ....anywhere else ?

#18 4 years ago

I have a 66 Williams Pitch and Bat and the sister model .. 65 Double Play. Double play is tucked away for a restoration one day.

I can use a line on a new control panel for the 66 or where I can get the black/gold-dotted formica top. I have several older control panels I would trade for a 66 one.

Monarca1091,

it is still showing the slugfest bat $12.50 as in stock, the line drive bat is out of stock.

Only other one I have seen is the one on eBay for $65 plus it comes with the driver arm assembly ($30 value new).

Oldcarz,

That is a fine looking machine. I was outbid on a official baseball recently on eBay on a very very tired example. If I get one to restore any time soon I will use yours as a reference on what it could look like.

Hey Mike,

So you have all the Williams Pitcher Front Mouldings!

We had topics 2 months back on making new ones, we cannot replicate the Formica top with markings as well as we would like. If I see a 66 moulding will let you know.

#27 4 years ago

I have a '73 Williams Upper Deck. Cabinet needs to be repainted but plays great. Initially, I bought it without the backglass but found one, NIB, only 700 km/435 miles away ... so I drove there. And brought home 5 more pins and two vids.

Steve,
Thank you for the compliment. The machine was restored about 20 years ago by the previous owner. I didn't do anything cosmetic since getting it. Just generally shopping/bulbs/lubrication. I had discovered that the machine needed 6 balls to operate smoothly. It had 2 when I got it, so ordering a fresh set of 6 balls was an easy way to get it up to snuff.
Good luck with your search.

Here's my '74 Chicago "Coin World Series". More pics at http://swampfire.smugmug.com/Category/74-World-Series/

The seller went all out and applied oak veneer. It's not original, but it sure is pretty!

I like the idea of it being a standup model with a small foot print so you can tuck it in a corner where you would not have room for a pin or you simply don't want to dedicate that much room for a full size Pitch N Bat. Is it a good player? Seems like it has all the right stuff.

true dat! those two right next to each other in my game room would make chris a very happy boy...

#34 4 years ago

Looks like Chicago Coin made another standup model in 1973 Called "Baseball Champ", so there appears to be this model and the 1974 "World Series", so 2 total made by CC.

yea, looks like it has all the goodies in terms of gameplay...

no running man... that's the only real drawback...

pf is shorter (it appears that way, anyway) vs. a full-size... kinda like playing in citizens bank park vs. citi field...

I sold Defender, but I have a JROK Multi-Williams in its place that I made from a nice Joust cab. I play Bubbles way more than Defender.

WOW....2 grand! Nuts!

#39 4 years ago

Here's a couple of my favorites. I still have the 1940s Keeney Deluxe Texas Leaguer. Its got a small footprint so it doesn't take up much floor space. I sold the 1960 Williams Official Baseball. Look closely at the Official Baseball players. They were hand-painted by a professional artist to reflect the 1960's Yankees team, correct jersey numbers, hat logo and all. The backglass blue jerseys compelled me to turn the 3D players into Micky Mantle, Whitey Ford et al. In fact, I recently found a couple of spare 3D mannequin players, probably wondering why they've been in the dugout so long. For the record, though, I'm more of a Philly's fan.

#40 4 years ago

In addition to Mickey Mantle and Whitey Ford, other mannequin players on my Official Baseball included Roger Maris and Yogi Berra. Okay, now that I've posted these photos, I wish that I had kept the game. At times, I also regret selling my 1973 Williams Upper Deck. Oh well, fellow collectors are enjoying them.

Below are some photos of my 1963 Midway Slugger (gone) as well as a few more of the others.

Sorry new to pin side forums did not mean to post all these photos restoring a CCI baseball champ just a few pics I wanted to share not all these. Looking for a animation cam pictured above 190-550 mine has a bad chip causing issues I've made some custom repairs attempts with JB weld but like to find original in good shape if someone has one let me know. Also I had a digital restore done on the right and left poster board inside if you want the art file let me know it costs me $80 it's off somewhat from the original but looks pretty similar just was hard to scan the originals 100% to size $10 for the file or trade for parts .Have been using Klov site but this seems to have more users and a lot more info can be shared just a bit different layout I'm hoping this site can provide more feedback.

ZNET,
Said it before, you have great ball games in marvelous condition. If you are moving the games on then you must be replacing them with other great games. I need to review your site soon to see whats coming in.

I've thought about having the background reproduced for my '74 CC World Series. I have them scanned, so I just need to spend a weekend cleaning them up. Not sure if I'd run into copyright problems though...

I can't see any problems reproducing for yourself with no license anyway as you are just simply replacing a worn out part on your machine. Now if you mass produced them for sale to the public then I would look into getting permission from whomever holds the rights for Chicago Coin, which is most likely Stern as they bought them out originally.

ChrisG78, what is this product in this pic and where did you get it? I assume it is for re-doing the white plastic inside trim.

I'm very interested in that too - Mine has no trim. I can share my scans of the bleacher and stadium art if you'd like. Should I start a '74 World Series "club" thread?

Before and after photos of my Rock-Ola 1937 World Series. I bought the game in 1982. Complete top to bottom restoration around 1992. Not by me! I can only dream of having the skills it takes to create a thing of beauty like this. I cannot remember the last name of the person who did this work. His first name was Mark and he lived in southern California and was known for his cabinetry work as evidenced by these photos. Unfortunately there is a very sad tale of betrayal by a trusted friend behind these photos. Not by Mark. Taught me a very good lesson though.
