[VIDEOS] Throwback Thursday: 5 Coaches Give Their FungoMan Review

Posted by Camille D.C. Sutton on Oct 4, 2018 12:00:00 PM

Born from the baseball dad who wanted to give better fungoes to his son outside of practice, he figured: "surely there's a machine out there that can challenge my son with the exact reps he needs."

I've seen a lot of baseball games in my day. And that's okay. I like seeing my team win, but when the alternative happens, a sense of powerlessness has a way of creeping in, you feel me?
