Bunt Rotation
by: Coach Dan

Great question! No matter how many people you speak with, they will likely give you a different answer. For me, I like consistency so they players react automatically. I will have my first baseman, pitcher and third baseman charge. Second base covers first, short stop covers second and left fielder covers third. I do not want the runner on first advancing to third under any circumstance. I do want whoever fields the ball to freeze the runner at third and get an out at first. If the runner is breaking from third, make the play at home where the catcher should be covering the plate.

Kind regards,
Dan
