Legendary Pinball Designer Steve Kordek Passes Away.


It is with a saddened heart that I share this news, friends. The man who has been credited with making Pinball the game it is today passed away last week, February 19th, at the of 100. That is a ripe old age at the very least and his legacy still exists for us fans of the Silver Ball.

Steve designed tables for Bally and Williams in his long career and his very last table design was back in 2003, a National Lampoon’s Family Vacation table for Genco, Bally, and Williams.
