“I have been using the FM-250 since 2005 and have found it to be an integral part of our infield development.  The consistency of the hops allow us to get the max reps/work done in a short amount of time.”

“I really feel like using the FungoMan presents a more gamelike speed and hop for our guys to get their work done.  The remote controllers allow me to be out on the field close to our players for instructional purposes.”

“Early in the year when its cold and we want to be efficient with our time outside, the FungoMan is a must! In fact most of our early work is done now with one or both of the FM-250 machines.”

“It was the first piece of equipment I asked to purchase upon arriving at Edmond North due to how much I used it at the high school I previously coached at. It is an invaluable tool as far as delivering consistent types of balls whether it be infield or outfield balls. The off season in a big program with only 2 coaches is challenging but FungoMan acts as an additional coach and can single handedly run the outfield portion of practice allowing the myself and another coach to see to infielders and hitters and I can control the action from anywhere I’m at on the field. No doubt it has helped our catchers become better at pop ups due to the consistent reps it provides that would be almost impossible with a fungo.”

Edmond North HS Huskies
“It also serves as a bunting station behind our roll up during BP that requires very little supervision as well as providing an opportunity for extra work for players that want to stay late while coaches take care of other duties. It is greatly valued during our tryouts as we are able to deliver consistent balls to each player and with the ability to save the routine we are assured to deliver the same type of tryout for players that come out after their respective sport has concluded.”

“I can’t imagine our program without FungoMan as it has proven year after year to be a valuable asset to our program that is only limited to a coaches creativity.”

Titans Sports Academy - Chance Beam

Posted on 10/23/2014 at 08:44 AM

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...
