  1. I have had this same machine since 1980 and the “free” man on second base is an annoying feature as well. Thanks for the pics and write up. I enjoyed reading it.

  2. Hi , I just bought the 1970 Gotlieb baseball pinball game . It’s my first pinball game . The game keeps going I can’t figure out how to set a 3 ball or 5 ball game . I see something that’s labeled 3-5 ball adjustment and looks like a pin would slide in but there is no pin near it . I see the same device on this site and there is no pin in that picture either . Can someone tell me how to make this adjustment?

  3. Jeff – How many balls per game are you currently getting? There is a rectangular brown plug that holds 3 prongs. It should be currently placed in the 3 or 5 balls per game plugs. To change it, pull it straight UP. In the 3 ball configuration the two 100 point thumper bumpers at the top of the playfield are always lit for 100 points In 5 ball configuration, those bumpers only light when there are runners on 2nd and 3rd base. Otherwise, they are only 10 points. My man on second relay is acting up again and not lighting the 100 point bumpers in 5 ball configuration with runners on 2nd and 3rd. I have it in 3 ball config until I can get this fixed.
