Baseball Drills: Bunting : Sacrifice Bunt Form

Drill: Sacrifice Form

This drill helps players work on the mechanics and timing of a sacrifice bunt. It also allows a coach to evaluate the bunting mechanics of a number of players at one time.


This drill is best done as a group drill.

Have a group of 5 to 6 players spread out about 20 feet in front of you.

Each player will take their stance and get ready for the pitch.

Coach will simulate a stretch and deliver an imaginary pitch.

Each player will work on the proper timing of getting in position to bunt.

Things to look for:

  • Does the player look balanced.
  • Is there a chance that they are stepping close to where the plate would be.
  • Is that bat at the proper angle and at the top of the strike zone.

Thank you for your excellent site. I will use it from now on. It is hard to find a good resource for info that is both "tactical" and "smooth" as it pertains to coaching. Thank you!!!
