FAQs on Training Bats
What is the difference between fungos and regular bats?
Fungo bats are strictly for training purposes. They are designed to be both longer and lighter than regular bats. When it comes to field practice, you need the balls to be flying tirelessly.
Fungo bats allow coaches to swing again and again without tiring. Because of their length, they also allow for greater accuracy when hitting. Used by every coaches during practice or warm-up, they're an indispensable tool to improve your baseball team.
How to use:
Two-hand trainers force batters to use proper technique and positioning of the hands so that when they switch back to a regular bat, they’ll be swinging with improved strength and speed. Keep your hands inside and, because of that big counterweight knob, you won’t feel any of that scary +12. However, if you let them drop and stray away from your body, that’s when you’ll feel the heaviness of the two-hand trainer.
