It seems that this in no longer for sale on Ebay and I don't remember who was making it. It was somebody's invention back in 2009, so not mass produced commercially. The only way to make one now is to eyeball it and construct it the best way you possibly can.
In case anybody stumbles on this site again and is looking for dimensions, I did some guessing and made a set of these last night. It's not cheap, but it ends up costing about the same as if you'd buy a regular ladder golf, and this looks like more fun! Dimensions that I used are pretty easy....the foul lines, all 3 outfield walls and the front and back pieces of the ground base are 18". Everything else is 12". When you do it that way it uses 41' of PVC, (I used 1" round pipe) to make 2 targets. You then need to get 14 right angle connectors, 8 3-way connectors, 4 open angle connectors and 2 4 way connectors. I used a $5 hacksaw and it took me about 2-3 hours max to cut and put together. I'm also going to try to score a different way, to make it more like baseball. Each team gets 9 bolo balls. A ball wrapped around 1st, 2nd or 3rd base counts as a base runner. Wrapped around the outfield wall is a home run. Anything else is an out. If you get 3 outs, even before your 9 balls are thrown, you're out and your turn is over. Each player throws 3 of their 9 balls at a time. Then the opponent throws 3 for a chance to cancel or get out the base runners. So if the first thrower lands one on 2nd base, and then the 'pitcher' lands one on 2nd base, that runner is erased. Home runs can't be cancelled. After that 'inning' is over, the other teammates do the same, and the team that was on defense or cancelling gets to start first as the 'batter'. Sounds very confusing, I know, but I think it will be pretty sweet! Good luck!
