While cleaning and re-assembly of the drop targets on my Williams Pitch and Bat -
I noticed a metal piece hanging down from the back of the targets behind the shield
that deflects the balls. There are no wires (that I can see) that are anywhere near this.
not sure of what the purpose is, or am I missing something? It's just stapled to the wood.

thanks for any help in this

Does it go through the board? Can you post some more pics?

You got me stumped. I checked all my williams pitch and bats along with extra target panels and none have that or a trace of it ever being there. A wild guess it could be a label mount that would have said ‘control panel ##’ or something like that although it would have been stapled directly to the panel and probably not shish kabobed on. Interesting

Or a key holder?

Under the target bank?

Yes under and behind the ball deflector shield. I was hoping someone with a line drive game
Could look at theirs and see if they have it also

I had a LINE DRIVE a few years back and I went thru the game cleaning,etc, along with paint. I can assure you whatever that alien creature is it was not present in mine.
Got no idea what you got there my friend. Good luck in your perusal.l
