What is bunt in baseball?
A bunt in baseball is a ball that is gently tapped in an attempt to make it difficult to field. As opposed to swinging the bat, a bunt is when a player faces the pitcher and holds the bat horizontally in front of home plate. The objective of a bunt is to tap the ball into fair territory just in front of home plate. If a bunt ends up in foul territory it's a strike for the batter. If the batter has two strikes and decides to bunt, he can strikeout if the bunt goes into foul territory.
