Bat Benefits

Fungo baseball bats are a common item to find in a dugout and when it comes time to hit some fielding practice coaches always use them. However, few folks understand the true benefit of using a fungo bat.

Long ago it was discovered that hitting fielding practice with a regular-sized baseball bat can get tiring. Within a given session, a coach could take anywhere between 50-100 swings. To spell coaches from exerting too much energy during the pre-game routine, the fungo bat was invented. A fungo is designed to be lighter than a regular baseball bat (usually 5-10 ounces lighter than a typical adult bat) which will make swinging it much less of a chore. As well, most of the bat's weight will be placed into the barrel (giving a fungo its distinct skinny handle and bigger barrel design). And it will usually be a little bit longer than a regular bat. When the factors of the (1) lighter weight (2) placement of the weight in the barrel and (3) extra length all work together within a fungo; a coach can create some decent torque and hit baseballs at high velocities without expending too much energy.

This specific K100 bat will be one of the most popular fungo bats out on the market. When compared to some other fungos, this one will probably be a little heftier overall. Nonetheless, one can put a pretty good charge into the baseball with this ash wood model.

In 1842, J. Frederick Hillerich emigrated with his family from Baden-Baden, Germany to the United States. Eight years before, the 1834 Book of Sports had made its debut as the nation's first publication covering baseball. But when he arrived in Baltimore, J. Frederick Hillerich would never have dreamed of the future impact his family would have on America's favorite pastime.

After a short while, the Hillerichs moved to Louisville, where J. Fred started a woodworking shop in 1856. Two of his sons, Adam and John Andrew "Bud" were born in the United States and would later join their father in his business. By 1864 "J.F. Hillerich, Job Turning" was in operation and filled orders for businesses by custom-turning everything from balusters to bedposts.

The firm thrived, and by 1875 the little woodworking shop employed about 20 people. In 1880 Bud Hillerich, who was an amateur baseball player, became an apprentice in his father's shop. Young Bud made his own baseball bats along with bats for several of his teammates.

The debate over the origins of the first bat continues to generate controversy among baseball enthusiasts, but the younger Hillerich was most certainly involved in getting his father's business involved with what would become the company's signature item. According to company legend, the first bat was turned by Bud for Pete "The Old Gladiator" Browning in 1884. Browning was a star on Louisville's professional American Association team - the Eclipse. On a spring afternoon Bud, then seventeen, witnessed Browning break his favorite bat. Bud offered to make a bat for his hero, and Browning accepted. After the young wood shop apprentice lathed a quality stick from white ash, according to the story, Browning got three hits with it in the next game.

Louisville Slugger gloves are worn by more pitchers in Major League Baseball than any other glove.
