The people who inspire us most are the ones who help us believe in ourselves. To watch Gary Carter, Ivan Rodriguez, or Carlton Fisk execute the catcher's position, was to believe in the position of a leader on the field and believe that we too could lead in that position.

One of our customers who inspires us most is Titan Sports Academy. To watch them create and execute drills is to watch creativity and discipline unfold on the field.

Individual Practice Ideas with FungoMan [Videos]

Posted by Camille D.C. Sutton on Mar 14, 2017 12:00:00 PM

While other kids were watching Cable TV growing up, I remember watching the YES Network documentaries of Yankee greats, including the likes of Don Mattingly.

I'll never forget hearing Mattingly talk about how obsessed he was with baseball in high school. He credits his high school coach for his unparalleled work ethic, challenging him to be the best on his team, best in his city, and best in the state, etc., etc.

You wouldn't find Mattingly with other students at the cafeteria during lunch hour. You'd find him in the indoor batting cage set up in the basketball gymnasium.

Those individual practice sessions during lunch period are the gems we at FungoMan value most in the makeup of a player's development.

Check out the ways players are capitalizing on individual practice.
