Titans Sports Academy President and CEO Chance Beam purchased a FungoMan FM-250 18 months ago. To date, they have thrown over 75,000 balls through their machine. “So far, the cost is about $.18 for every ball thrown. The more balls we throw the better our ROI gets because the FungoMan is doing things a paid coach would normally have to do. Now I can put that coach out in the field instructing players.” Chance has incorporated the FM-250 into both their indoor and outdoor practices. Click here to see more...

“We plan on using the machine for a promotion between innings called the ‘FungoMan Challenge’. We’ll gear up a lucky contestant in catcher’s gear, and then throw a pop up at home plate. If he can catch it, he’ll win a cash prize!”
