I am try to use sudo sh Filename.bundle to install vmware player on a mac.
I am getting this message when I run that command.

stat: illegal option -- -
usage: stat [-FlLnqrsx] [-f Format] [-t timefmt] [file...]

What am I missing with this command? Or is there a better way to install a .bundle package?

This sounds like a package for Ubuntu or Linux.  OS X runs BSD Unix under the hood so even though it's similar to Linux, it's not linux.  I recommend downloading the package for macs.

Vmware product for Mac is Vmware Fusion not Workstation which is for Windows / Linux I believe.

Ahh ok. I'm not sure VMware Fusion is what I'm looking for though.
 I'm looking for something that runs on a mac that's similar to the vSphere Client for windows.
This is so I can give some mac users access to a couple virtual machines.

I set up the vSphere web client thinking I could access that from a mac but Mac OS is also not supported to launch the console from there either. Guess I'll have to find some other work around.

Right - I had assume Fusion since you downloaded the Workstation version.  
If you're looking for a vsphere client to manage VMs, I think the short answer is no.  I don't recall ever seeing one or reading about it.  Below is a post that confirms it but more digging around shows there's no client also.

That's unfortunate. I see people have been asking for this for quite a few years so it's a little surprising they haven't done anything like this.
Thanks for your time.
