Sibley, LA – October 7, 2011 - Head Coach Bob Gray has been coaching in Northwest Louisiana for over 26 years. He has seen a lot of baseball both as a coach and as a father. However, it wasn’t until March of 2008, that he convinced the parents and boosters of his small community in Sibley, LA that they needed the FungoMan Automated Baseball Practice Machine. He was able to see the number of repetitions increase overnight. “I had the drills,” Gray said. “…and I knew what I wanted to accomplish. Now I had a tool that would help me accomplish more during the same amount of time.”read more »

GoDuke The Magazine, April 2011
As an alumnus with a rich background in the professional ranks, Duke baseball coach Sean McNally embraces player development as one of the essential avenues to building a better Blue Devil program. It is an especially significant tenet this year with a roster that includes 15 freshmen, four or five of whom start on a regular basis. McNally and his staff utilize numerous tools to help groom their players’ talents, and two new ones came on board this season — the artificial resurfacing of Jack Coombs Field to create an excellent on-campus training facility, and the addition of a FungoMan, an automated practice machine.
The FungoMan can rifle a slew of realistic ground balls at rapid intervals to players who want extra work on their defense. Infielders in particular make use of the device to practice fielding grounders after team workouts or on their own time — and nobody has used the machine more than freshman shortstop Angelo LaBruna.read more »
The Bridgewater-Raritan High School Baseball Program in Bridgewater, NJ is coming off the most successful season in program history. In 2010, the Panthers won the school’s first State Sectional Title. The summer team followed that championship up with an AABC 17u New Jersey State Title and a trip to Albuquerque, NM for nationals.
B-R purchased the FungoMan in December 2010 in conjunction with Bridgewater Baseball, the local youth baseball organization. The FungoMan quickly became an instrumental part of the Panthers’ practice and pregame routines.
“There is no doubt that the FungoMan was instrumental in our success as a program last year.”read more »

Gardner Bunting Way Into Girardi’s Good Graces
By BEN SHPIGEL
“...Starting in mid-December, Gardner would go to an indoor baseball facility near his home in Charleston, S.C., and bunt, bunt, bunt. He dumped a bucket of balls – about 80, he said – inside a machine called a Fungoman, which he could control by a remote that he kept in his pocket or at his feet. When one round was finished, he would pick up the balls and start again.
“It allows you to get a lot of reps in,” Gardner said. “The good thing was, I could just turn it on, didn’t have to unplug it or anything. I could just focus on getting a lot of work in.”read more »
