Maybe this helped our CUBS win the World Series, who knows, but you will love the huge playing field,(16.5″square), with a working scoreboard and a magnetized infield that changes up each pitch. Spring loaded bat swings (right or left handed) at pitches of varying speeds. A pitcher,3 base runners, 7 fielders, and 5 balls add up to the coolest gift ever for baseball fans!$39.99
