I'd like to know which of the following is natural English:

  1. Although Jimmy prefers to read in his leisure time, he does play occasional baseball games with us.
  2. Although Jimmy prefers to read in his leisure time, he does play an occasional baseball game with us.
  3. Although Jimmy prefers to read in his leisure time, he does play the occasional baseball game with us.

I'd appreciate your help.

All three are natural and acceptable English. You could also say "he does play baseball games with us occasionally".
