If you are a baseball fan or player, you may already know what all goes into the batting skill called bunting.
If not, then bunting could be one of Pinterests Bunting Boards for crafters. Or you may be thinking about THIS kind of bunting. Regardless of your knowledge of bunting, be assured every style requires a certain skill set.
It only takes a few seconds for Coach to remind his batter to do what was practiced and watch for his signals which are a routine of finger pointing, hat tipping, arm swings, and if all else fails shouting, "HIT the ball". Of course the watching opposition dugout are well versed in this coaching strategy, too.
So he throws first pitch low...ball 1...second and third pitch in the dirt...ball 2 and 3.
The batter looks at his coach who is pointing and tipping his hat in approval.
Next two pitches...right over the plate...perfect...heck with bunting...STRIKE 1...STRIKE 2.
Umpire yells out...FULL COUNT!!!
By now Coach is swinging arms, stomping on his hat and yelling...
BUNT the ball !!!
Next Pitch...Perfect Bunt...at least close enough...
...pitcher and catcher crash together...drop the ball...
...SAFE at 1st!!!
Coach is clapping and waving 2 fingers for 2 outs and What?
SAFE on 2nd with a time out to chat!
Second Baseman, "Nice Bunt".
"Thanks, it was my First".
