Bridgewater-Raritan HS Credits FungoMan as Part of 2010 Success

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.

The FungoMan Challenge

The FungoMan Challenge can be seen at tournaments and events where FungoMan is being featured. The event gives players the opportunity to catch 3 ground balls at 3b, ss, and 2b. These balls must be fielded clean and then thrown to 1st base successfully to score points.

The player must then run to right field to catch a fly ball, then run to center field to catch another fly ball, then finally run to left field to complete the drill. Watch as young players from 9 to 14 test their skills in The FungoMan Challenge!
