Great pitch and bat, and I believe the last one to have the holes in the playfield like the woodrail P&Bs. Great animations of the baserunners. THe one I owned pitched a little fast, and the "curveball" was just an unhittable pitch. Overall great though

Look beyond the words, "It's just another pitch and bat."
Know the differences between difference pitch and bat games, they are not all equal.
United and Chicago Coin made some good games as well.

Probably the third most iconic pitch and bat game made by WMS.
Two games that achieve greater notoriety are WMS 1959 'Pinch Hitter' with multiple SELECTABLE pitch types and WMS 1960 'Deluxe Official Baseball' with animated pitching, 3D players, and foul lanes.
The fourth game of pitch and bat notoriety is WMS 1956 '4 Bagger Deluxe'.
ALL are great games.

This game contains threee homerun ramps, and a full animate 'running man' unit.
One of the major advantages of this game is the "mystery pitcher" that can use both a fast, slow, and curveball pitches at random.
It is one of the fewer games that use the "extended play" option with the super home run, which makes a game challenging and adds additional innings based on the operator settings.
Definitely one the better cabinet designs of the era with the dark greens, bats, and balls and backglass image.

The game was immortalized in coin operated history for the the following reason:
"The 1962 World Series matched the defending American League and World Series champions New York Yankees against the National League champion San Francisco Giants. It is best remembered for its dramatic conclusion; with runners on second and third and two out in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 7, Hall-of-Famer Willie McCovey hit an exceptionally hard line drive that was caught by second baseman Bobby Richardson to preserve a one-run victory for the Yankees."
