B Why plastic for this piece

  1. Mar 24, 2016 #1
    why is the black piece plastic instead of just extending the metal? its bolted down. is it just for the axel support? Can you think of a reason they did this?




    thanks for your opinions

    I can't imagine how this mechanism works (shoots baseballs?). What happens when you pull the lever?

    In other words, what is the primary thing that the plastic component in question does exactly?
