Andamiro’s Baseball Pro Junior Offers Same Great Features In Compact Arcade Format
Bars, other street spots, small gamerooms with limited space can now accommodate skill game
GARDENA, CA — October 2, 2017 — New from Andamiro USA Corp. is Baseball Pro Junior, a smaller version of the manufacturer’s original Baseball Pro arcade game introduced a year ago. The compact model is now shipping to amusement operators nationwide.
“Operators asked us to make a smaller version of Baseball Pro, so here it is” said Andamiro USA Corp. president of sales Drew Maniscalco. “The Junior model is a good fit for bars and taverns, among other coin-op street locations, as well as entertainment centers looking to save space.”
Baseball Pro Junior measures 33.8″ W. x 70.8″ D. x 89.3″ H., compared with its predecessor’s 43.3″ W. x 92.5″ D. x 110.2″ H. dimensions, reducing the footprint by almost 40%.
One of Andamiro’s specialties is integrating mechanical engineering and electronic design, which is evidenced by Baseball Pro’s ability to simulate the real game. Baseball Pro Junior offers the same feature-rich gameplay as the original, which updates a classic arcade game genre for today’s players. Andamiro’s baseball lineup pays homage to the mechanical “pitch-and-bat” arcade machines of the 1950s.

The company’s novel baseball bat interface and automatic pitching mechanism are key to the game’s popularity. The player uses a miniature bat to hit the ball onto the playfield; they apply their skill to direct the ball away from the “out” holes, and into the base hit and homerun target openings. When they make a hit, runners advance from base to base. Good batting technique is rewarded with tickets. Audio play-by-play commentary and responsive illumination effects enhance the experience.
“Baseball Pro is designed to cultivate a following of steady players,” Maniscalco observed. “This is a great piece for operators who are looking to add entertainment value to their locations — so look no further!”
