Baseball Bunting Drill – Mad Tomato Drill

Take a look at this submission from Bobby. A great example of a baseball bunting drill that can work with all age groups.

From Bobby…
The Mad Tomato Drill
This baseball drill teaches placement of bunts and slaps.

I draw alleys on the left and right side of the pitchers mound starting at home plate (using the foul lines as the inbounds marks)-

and then divide the right and left alleys into zone 1 and 2 related to the points they are worth if the ball lands in these zones.
There is 1 additional zone in front of home plate about 3 feet in front and extends about 7 feet toward the pitcher – worth 2 points.
Just in front of the pitcher- I draw a big circle (approximately 8 feet in diameter)- with a mean face in the middle (the players say

it looks like a mad tomato)- any ball that goes in this zone they loose all their points.

The winner receives an award of some sort. Hope you all have as much fun with this drill as we do.
