In four JMU seasons – mostly as a first baseman – Bundy appeared in 178 games and compiled a .347 career batting average and a .638 career slugging percentage.  While officially batting 577 times, he had 40 doubles, 10 triples, 36 home runs and 148 runs batted in.  His home run total remained a JMU career record at the time of his induction, and he also still ranked third in team history in walks (133), fourth in triples, and fifth in runs scored (186).  He also was successful on 26 of 28 career stolen-base attempts.

Bundy played professionally for eight seasons after leaving JMU, reaching the Triple-A level, and then remained active in the game as a instructor, coach and manager in the minor leagues and in winter league play.  He coached at the major-league level in 1998 and 1999 with the Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies, respectively, and was a coach in the Arizona Diamondbacks’ organization at the time of his induction.
