Big Bat Baseball stands upright so it can be displayed on a counter or bar top. It has 10 metal balls that work perfecty and has a leaver to return the balls..The baseball bat fires the balls.

For anyone not familiar with American Style baseball, here is a basic explaination.

There are three bases, 1st/single, 2nd/double, and 3rd/triple and home plate, where the batter, catcher, and umpire are.
Nit's can be single, doubles, triples, and home runs, where the batter runs all three bases and crosses home plate.

A run is scored whenever a baserunner crosses home plate. There are three outs to an inning, and strikes and balls add up to outs/three strikes and walks/four balls. A walk allows the batter go to 1st base without getting a hit.

If a runner is on 1st base and the batter gets a walk, the runner on 1st moves to 2nd, otherwise any runner remains at the base he is on when the batter gets a walk.

When the batter hits the ball, the runners might start running to the next base, if no fielder is going to catch the ball in the air or as it rolls and bounces on acorss the ground. If the ball is hit in the air, it usually is caught, so the runners stay where they are.

If the ball is caught far enough away in the outfield, any runner can try to move to the next base, but will be out if the ball is returned to the infield soon enough for him to be tagged and called out by the umpire.

While baseball is a lot more involved than this, you now know enough to understand how Big Bat Baseball works. --@tiltjlp
