The word Fungo has several etymologies: may be derived from the word Fungus as they are stale and used for practice, not actual play, related, could be some sort of paradigim thing: One Goes, two Goes, Three Goes- Fun Goes! while tossing the ball.sort of a blend word Fun- plus Goes. a Fungo stick is thinner than an ordinary Baseball bat. Those are the etymologies of Fungo, I do not know who invented it, seems they used second-line bats for instructional purposes which makes sense like the reserves using second-line ( but perrfectly serviceable) weapons in the Armed Forces.l hand=me-downs. as it were.
That would be a fungo bat.

Fungo bats are taped on the big end because they hit more balls than a regular bat and this protects the wood and allow it to last longer. Tape also allows the fungo hitter more traction off the bat so more fly balls or ground balls can be controlled better.
Nobody seems to know for sure. A couple of explanations are: 1) The word 'fungible' means 'something that is exchangable'. The bat used to hit practice ground/fly balls is lighter and thinner than a regular bat and fungo may have originated with the bat as it replaces a regular bat when hitting ground/fly balls for practice. 2) There was a child's game called fungo where a batter would hit fly balls and after one of the 'outfielders' caught a pre-determined amount, the outfielder and batter would switch places.

A fungo is a fielding practice drill in baseball in which a person deliberately hits fly balls in order to be caught.

A bat is, essentially, a round stick. I'm not sure it needed to be "invented."
The first aluminum baseball bat was created in the year 1924. The inventor of the bat was named William Shroyer.
It was invented so that when playing baseball the players could hit the baseball with something to score runs.
History has not recorded who invented the bat. The bat has been needed for the game since its invention and early bats were made by private woodworkers.
2 layers at most. Start maybe a couple inches above the label and end an inch or so from the end of the bat.

The aluminum bat was invented by William Shroyer. He received his patent for the bat in 1924. However, they did not become popular with youth and college players until the 1970s.
The first metal bat was invented in 1924 by William Shroyer but wasn't used until 1970 to do the development of stronger aluminum. The first wood bat was invented in the 14th century in Russia because of a similar game to baseball and no one person is credited.
