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.

What do you call the top portion of the bat?

Well, I guess that depends on what side of the bat is up when you call it the top. Starting at the fat end of the bat, that is just called the Tip. Then the rest of the fat part of the bat is called the Barrel. Then it tapers down to the Handle. Around the handle is the Grip. Then at the very end, the part that stops your hands from sliding off of the bat is called the Knob.
