My friend has a Williams 1966 Pitch and Bat gave that does NOT have the label strip on the relay bank in the bottom cabinet.

There is a photo posted on IPDB that shows the relays bank and label strip, but unfortunately the label fuzzy and can’t be read

If there is someone out there with this game who can provide a photo or a list of all the bank relays in order it would be greatly appreciated

I happened to go through an old trunk containing some pinball stuff and found the original schematics for a 1966 Pitch n Bat game. I had once owned the game in the late 1970's and it appears the original doc got separated from the game. Let me know if you or anyone else can use it.

My friend has an original schematic already. Thanks.

No responses to this post other then yours so doesn’t seem too many of these games are out there.

Ultimately you’ll find a home for it.

Have you tried reaching out to owners listed at:

or, going through the schematic to identify the unknown relays by their wire colors and/or number of switches?

My guess for the bank positions are.
The first 5 relays with the double stack of switches are in no particular order is.
3rd out relay with br-w wire going to it’s coil.
The next 4 relays will have a normally closed switch inline with a jumper going to its relay coil.
Start relay with o-r wire
2nd coin relay with o-BLU wire
Tilt relay with b-o wire
Game over relay with g-o wire
The 9 relays with the single switch stack are
The 7 targets
The extra inning bar (no coil). Could be positioned near the middle of the 7 target relays.
And the in play relay.
It seems like that there isn’t a reset relay. And reset functions work off the start relay.

I remember from the clinic that there was a problem with the running man unit. It has to be disconnected and removed from the machine to be worked on properly. Post pics and questions if help is needed.

Thanks all for the feedback

Properly identified all but two of the relays using schematic / wires colors.

Was not easy as the wiring is badly discolored.

Know what the last two relays are just need to sort out which is which.

Appreciate the help

If you're down to the last two unknown relays, you could compare the number and type of switches on each relay an compare that against the schematic. You could also use the schematic and a meter to identify which circuit(s) drive the two relays.
