Got my Williams '66 Pitch and Bat totally up and running. Started with a good base game (thanks Hoov) then put some fresh parts on the bat mechanism (pretty beefy compared to pinball flippers) and completely took apart/de-gunked and lightly lubed the pitching mechanism. There is now a significant difference between the Fast and Slow balls.
Added a new home run plastic from Steve in Texas which really brightens up the play field. Had some issues with the 2nd player but finally got that figured out.
The game really is a blast and super fun as a 2-player game. I can see this being a huge hit a parties.
One question I have is that you can see how the color in the words "Pitch and Bat" is completely washed out. If I put a piece of red colored plastic (like from a see-through plastic file folder) behind the letters, would that look OK?
Check out the wear on the bat driver arm!
