1. A backboard panel D comprising of horizontal 4(a) bats and 4(b) bats and also 2(c) flat angle rebound boards, 1 of 4 plastic head bolts E which hold in place rectangular plate E with male plug on the back side.

2. The backboard panel as described in claim 1. Beginning with horizontal 1C, the horizontal (a) bats and (b) bats down to 2C are in a spaced relationship and parallel to each other.

3. The backboard panel D as described in claim 2 has top 1C flat rebound board, rises from the backboard panel at a 120° angle and the bottom 2C the opposite.

4. The backboard panel D as described in claim 2 has 4(a) bats along with the 4(b) bats. See section AA FIG. 1 for enlarged detail.

5. The backboard panel D as described in claim 4. The radius point of 1(a) bats are at the outside edge of the backboard panel while that of the 1(b) bats the radius point is ¼ of the radius distance to the left of 1(a) bats radius point, and approximately 2½″ below. Again see enlarged detail Section AA FIG. 1.

6. The backboard panel D as described in claim 1. The rectangular plate with male plug E (see Sec BB FIG. 2) for enlarged detail. The plug being engaged in the PVC line. The plug along with the pipe having a hole through them, and kept in place by bolt F.

7. The backboard panel D as described in FIG. 6. Has FIG. 2 showing the bracing of the backboard panel. The rectangular plates holding the plastic pipe bracing in place.

[0001] A backboard panel incorporating on its surface parts that allow for the invention to be known as the all-plastic Super Fielder Practice Apparatus. Inventor reserves the right to change materials if he so chooses in the future and also the space distance between bats is open to change. The primary object of the invention is to develop quick fielding reactions for baseball players.


[0002] In the accompanying drawings are illustrated the key parts that embody the Super Fielder Practice Apparatus.

[0003] FIG. 1 is the front view elevation of the backboard panel, with combination of bats and rebound boards incorporated.

[0004] FIG. 2 is a side view showing the rectangular male plate connecting to the backboard and the supporting plastic pipe frame.

[0005] Section AA FIG. 1 is an enlarged view of backboard panel, comprising the flat rebound board, and horizontal bat 1a, and horizontal bat 1b. The radius point of 1a being the edge of the backboard panel, while that of bat 1b, the radius point is ¼ of radius distance to the left of 1a bats radius point and approximately 2½″ below.

[0006] Section BB FIG. 2. also an enlarged view of the backboard, showing the rectangular plate male plug engaging the pipe support bracing and secured in place by the plastic bolt.
