    I disagree with her sac bunting style. This is the way girls are taught, but men are taught to piviot on the back foot and open up with the front foot, making it easier to see the ball. She says her foot position allows the bunter to get a better start to 1st base after she’s say the hitter isn’t important for anything but getting the ball down to advance the runner/s. The best place to bunt is infront of the pitcher making the pitcher field it and throw the ball overhand. Pitchers don’t usually have a very god overhand throw and tend to make bad throws. Too many young girls pick up their back foot and move it towards/on the plate. The back foot should be used as the piviot foot,and the front foot opens away from the plate. Everyone needs to learn to sac bunt, and in a bunt situation, bunting should be automatic and not optional.
    There is also the “fake bunt” with runner on 2nd to get the 3rd basemen to be fooled enough to get her to get far enough from the base to not be able recover to get back and cover causing a foot race with the shortstop and the runner, making the ss have to catch to ball on the run.

    Christine did an excellent job with this lesson. It’s easy to see why she’s so busy giving lessons all the time!

    If you beleive girls are do things different than men in same sport.
    The way she teaches the sacrifice bunt is different than the way men do it.
    Men learn to piviot on back foot, square around, to see the ball better, and catch the ball with the top hand on the bat.
    The sac bunt is one, if not the most important times at bat, and if the runner advances, the bunter is not charged with an at bat.
    Just because most girls bunt like she teaches doesn’t mean it’s right.
    Be sides, being taught to pitch different than men, they are taught to
    sac bunt different.
    If you ever played men’s fastpitch you would know the difference/s.
