Kinetico baseball automaton by Gordon Bradt

Check out this baseball-player automaton made by Gordon Bradt's company from 1975 to 1985. When you turn it on a spring mechanism propels the batter to swing and really hit the ball.

From the ebay item description:
According to the description on his website: "Gordon Bradt and Kinetico Studios produced about 100,000 of these mechanized sports figures between about 1975 and 1985. Some of the sculptures were built with 220volt motors for use in other parts of the world. The sculptures have suddenly resurfaced as collector items, and can be found in auctions and estate sales around the world."
