Most coaches prefer the feel of a wood fungo bat. The X Bat pro maple fungo is a vast improvement over traditional ash and aluminum fungo bats. We have two Hall of Fame coaches in their 80s who have told us in Spring Training that they can hit our balls with our fungo bats for hours because the bat does the work. Light aluminum and light ash fungo bats require a lot of energy to swing. Hitting hundreds of balls can drain a coach of his effectiveness and reduce the time needed to do drills properly. X Bat maple fungo bats almost swing themselves. They require the coach to just "drop the head" and the balls just fly off the hard maple. We make them in all teams colors and will inscribe the coach's name and school or team on each bat. Once you swing an X Bat maple fungo bat, you'll never swing anything else. We recommend 34 inch for infield fungoes and ground balls, 36 inch for outfield fungoes and fly balls and 35 inch for a good all-purpose fungo.
