The Joseph Schneider firm of New York produced a metal baseball simulation game in the form of a bagatelle during the late 1930s. The game's unique feature is a spring-wound playing field. When the ball passes onto the field it can drop into the hole marked for any base, including home (for a home run.) Many firms produced baseball-themed games and bagatelles during this time.
