Ludington's new pitching machine

Ludington baseball coach Rob Killips sets up the FungoMan 250 pitching machine the program purchased in the off-season. The machine has aided in improving the Orioles’ practices.

Baseball practices both inside at Ludington and outside at Stokely Diamond have been a little livelier this season thanks in large part to FungoMan.

FungoMan isn’t a person, but a machine — a pitching machine. It was purchased thanks in large part to the leadership of Mary Jo Kroeze and donations from the Ludington Sports Booster Club and Indian Summer.
