Objective

  • This is a great drill for giving players an opportunity to practice bunting.

Equipment

  • Baseballs (10-15)
  • Screen/Fence
  • Bats
  • Cones

Description

  • Divide players into two groups. Place one group at second base and the other at home plate.
  • Two coaches throw from the front and back of the pitching mound (coach at the front of the mound throws to hitters at the plate while coach standing at the back of the mound throws to hitters at second base).
  • One at a time hitters assume the bunting position and attempt to bunt their ball down one of the foul lines.
  • After laying down a bunt, players run hard through first base (players bunting from second run hard through third base) then jog over and join the other line.

Tips

  • It may help to place cones where you want the players to bunt the ball.
