Custom Baseball Gifts – Real Play Baseball

When it comes to custom baseball gifts, this may be the ultimate hands-on gift. Real Play pinball baseball, perhaps the most realistic of all mechanical baseball games ever built. It’s a unique gift that will set your baseball-loving spouse, partner, friend, or coach apart from everyone else!Quint Premier Baseball Games

Real Play Baseball is designed, patented, and built by Richard Quint, founder and owner of Quint Premier Baseball Games. His game was launched in 2013 at the 34th National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago.

Excellent Craftmanship

Each baseball pinball machine that is created is hand-built by Mr. Quint, who numbers and personally signs each game. It is mechanical, not electronic, combining pinball with memorabilia, and is built to last for many decades.

To quote Mr. Quinn, “I built this game to be a great baseball pinball game, and also a collectible, a piece of furniture and quite simply the centerpiece for the greatest collection in the world.”

Specifications and Customizations

The game features a 1900s model replica scoreboard, a working clock, and seven golden arches, similar to those at the Los Angeles Coliseum, in the background. The arches area is intended to be used as a display area for some of your personal baseball memorabilia.

Another great feature is that the playing field is water-resistant. This could certainly be a life-saver if a beverage is spilled due to players begin deeply locked in a tight game battle.

Physical size of the game board is 41.5 inches by 41.5 inches. Ballpark fences are 5.5 inches tall. The rear scoreboard is 32 inches wide and 18 inches in height. The game weighs between 50 and 70 pounds.

Each beautifully hand-crafted game can also be customized by:

  • Personalizing the game with your name, team, business, school, and/or stadium name
  • Choosing one of five backgrounds: red brick, ash wood, yellow, black and white checkerboard, and 50s collage
  • Adding stadium lights for a nighttime experience and/or a 21-inch mesh fence

Playing the Game

The style of this game is based on vintage pinball-type baseball games. Though it can be played solo, it is intentionally built for two or more players, without the use of electronics, to allow for maximum engagement and baseball realism.

Making the catch

Players choose their team and fill out a lineup card. As the game progresses, players track balls and strikes, outs, base runners, and innings.

As in most pinball-style games, a spring-loaded device is used to pitch the ball. Using an adjustment lever, however, the pitcher can make the pitch go inside or outside. Speed of the pitch can also be varied.

Hitters swing the bat by pulling on a lever. If the swing is timed properly, the ball can be hit in any direction on the field. Balls and strikes can be called, or if the ball is hit, there are numerous pockets that count as ball, strikes or hits.

Launching the ball up a stainless steel ramp and over the fence constitutes a home run.

If the ball disappears into a hole, it is an out and the ball is returned to a front pocket area.

  1. I must admit, I am relatively new to this game and sport but feel you introduced me to it via your wonderfully designed website. I am getting very much interested to learn more about it.

    This hand made board is extremely well designed and authentic. I would love to have one if I were a real fan of the game.

    All the best and I’m looking forward to reading more from you.

  2. Congratulations to Mr. Quint. He had a genius idea, designed it, and made it happen. I like the combination of nostalgia and real game experience. The attention to detail and the customization of your very own ballpark make this unique gift for any true baseball fan.

    It would also be a great way to bring fathers and sons together to share their love of baseball and pass the pinball experience on to the next generation.

    Awesome site!

    1. Thanks for your thoughts, Josh. The customizations that are available can make this a really special gift. And, as you note, it’s so well built that this gift will last a long time.
