Shadow Bunting: What Is It?

Shadow bunting refers to having a backup hitter doing what the on-deck hitter is doing.

If you have a lot of kids that you are trying to work on bunting with, you can have your hitter shadowing your on-deck hitter and you can have a second on-deck person shadow bunting off the tee.

The lower the tee the better so you can really work on bending your knees and getting to the low strike.

Or you can move the tee up and work on bunting the high pitch.

Be sure your hitters understand the proper mechanics of the bunting form, which is to pivot and turn and then bend the knee and go down to bunt the ball.
