- With a runner on first, the hitter should bunt to the first base side. Remember, knees flexed and create the right bat angle.
- With a runner on second (or first and second), left-handed hitters should point the knob of the bat toward first. Righties, point the barrel toward first. This creates the proper bat angle to bunt toward the third baseman, forcing him to come away from his position.
- If you’re the coach, remind your batter where the runners are: “Runner on first.” “Runners on second and third.”
- Keep the ball away from the pitcher, forcing the infielders to come in and attempt to field and throw the ball.
