Related Topics: batting, hit

Bunt in softball is a technique that the batter uses, especially in the fast fastpitch game. It is the same as the bunting in baseball.

Bunt is performed by hitting the ball with a loosely gripped bat in front of the home plate and forcing the ball to bounce off from the bat.

If done right, the ball with travel slowly towards the targeted area, increasing the problems for the infielders to field.
