Dick's Sporting Goods, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, announced the recall of about 57,000 Power Bolt Y-Frame and Ultimate Y-Frame adjustable pitchbacks because the upper portion of the frame can collapse after both locking pins are removed, posing a laceration hazard.

Dick's said it has received three reports of finger/hand laceration injuries.

The recall involves the Power Bolt Y-Frame Pitchback and Y-Frame Ultimate Pitchback. The products' Y-shaped metal frames have attached netting which will return a thrown ball to the user. The upper portion of the frame is adjustable to allow a variety of rebound angles.
The pitchbacks were manufactured in China. The Power Bolt Y-Frame Pitchback was sold from November 2002 to July 2007 for about $70. The Power Bolt Y-Frame Ultimate Pitchback was sold from February 2005 to July 2007 for about $100.

The CPSC advise buyers to stop using the product immediately and contact Dick's at 866-677-4771 for information on receiving a free repair kit.
