man must kick the ball across an imaginary diagonal line from 1st base to 3rd base. The goal of the man bunt is to kick the ball so that it will reach this line as slowly as possible. This will either force the pitcher to run down the bunt and attempt to throw the player out, which is impossible if the runner is not super slow, or the pitcher must wait out the kick hoping it won’t cross the line and allow the runner to get on base.
I just got a double on a man bunt! This team sucks.
Man bunts that fail to either advance a runner or land the batter safely on base are not acutally man bunts, but just plain ole’ screwing up.
First Baseman: that was total BS.
Chris: Pshaw! That was skill. Don’t you know a good man bunt when you see one?
