Extra Inning is a baseball arcade game which was released by Midway Games in 1978; it utilizes an Intel 8080 microprocessor running at 1.9968 MHz, and is the third title in the Midway Baseball series. It is fundamentally the same as its predecessor, Double Play (released in the previous year), only the pitching player's joystick is back to being an 8-way one (although the outfielders' control is still rotary) - and an eponymous "extra inning" bonus will also be awarded when the players hit safely to all fields marked with the six letters of the manufacturer's name (indicated by their size increase in the bottom-left corner of the monitor). The number of innings you will receive for one coin again depends on how the cabinet is set, but if it's less than nine, you will once again have to insert another coin to continue.
