A real action baseball game that can be played indoors and out. Slugging Sam, the mechanical batter, actually hits the ball. The player "at bat" can make Sam hit a high fly, medium fly or a line drive in any direction. The height of the fly is secretly changed by adjusting the ball holder, and the direction changed by turning batting platform. The object of the game is to hit the ball so that it cannot be caught in the air by the players in the field. This allows the players at bat to move his runners around the bases and score runs.
