Sacrifice Bunt –This is how we get it done!
Now, a few technical things:
Stance: Most of the time when you’re hitting, you’re at the back of the box. Sacrifice bunt… you move up a step closer to the pitcher. That creates an easier angle to get the bund down. When we’re in our stance, all we do is take our right leg, our back leg, and we’re going to pivot towards the pitcher.
Hands: We’re going to bring our top hand up towards the label and we’re going to keep our barrel always above the hands. This helps us get the ball directly down. If we dip the barrel down below our hands, the ball’s going to pop up.
Bat Angle: We always want to keep the right angle, barrel above our hands. The bat’s going to be at the top of the strike zone and we’re going to bend our knees as the ball’s coming in. If it’s low, we’re not going to dip the barrel down, remember, we’re going to keep this angle (barrel up) and instead use our legs to get down to the ball.
