Chronological Order of all above Sports Games:
Starting in 1947, Williams usually produced one new baseball game every year until
about 1973. Their yearly baseball was usually
introduced early in the year, in the Febuary to May time-frame.
They also made specific versions of that yearly offering for unique areas of the
country. For example, a non-replay (novelty) version for New York
and Wisconsin (where winning a replay was considered illegal).
Pre-WW2 (not the focus of this document, but some interesting models):
- All American Baseball Game,
Amusement Machine Corp, made 1929 to 1931, one player,
the game World Series 1937
by Rockola was based on and nearly a copy of,
manikin playfield players. The "batter up" names included real ball players of the
time, such as Babe Ruth. George Miner, the inventer of this game, sold all the
rights and tool equipment to Harry Williams in 1931. Miner sold to Williams because
nickel play arcade machines (like his baseball) had died at the arcades, being replaced by penny
pinball games. Harry Williams was hired by Bally in 1935, and Bally was going
to remake the Miner baseball game. Miner was contracted by Bally to make some improvements,
but was killed in an airplane crash on October 7, 1935. Then Rockola hired Harry
Williams as chief pinball engineer, and along with Harry Williams came the Miner
All American Baseball patents and tooling. Rockola then produced the game as "World
Series" in 1937.
