Quoted from dr_nybble:
I don't know too much about pitch and bats, only played one once before I got this project. The original playfield is good old plywood. It was pretty beat but not unrecoverable. Thought it would be a good candidate to attempt a brand new playfield since there are not too many holes to deal with. I mostly wanted to see how hard it would be and if it could be done.
The original used "flesh" colour for the player's faces and the field. I changed the field colour to be less fleshy. This is a shot with black partially applied to the new playfield.
