Drag Bunt

 In tashatips

Hey Hey Game Changers!

Let’s get back to my hitters who have some speed who hit from the left side! Now I know you have some power and hitting can be contagious, but please don’t forget about the DRAG BUNT! Lately, when watching college ball, I feel like the art of putting down a drag bunt has disappeared. Now, don’t get me wrong, I appreciate power but there is something to be said when hitters can catch a defense by surprise and take advantage. This was one of my favorite things to do (evidence in this video)!!!!!!

In this #Tashatips, we break down the technicalities to drag bunting.
Drag bunts can be used in:

  • Bunt situations to move runners (and potentially be safe too)
  • Trying to get base hits by catching defense off guard

Mainly drag bunts are just another tool we as hitters/slappers from the left side can add to our arsenal. Some things to focus on are:

  • Same footwork as slapping
  • Get your hands out early
  • Aim for top 1/3 of bat

Please do me a favor, if drag bunting isn’t currently part of your game, lets change that TODAY!!!

Let’s go Game Changers!
