Sacrifice Bunt Runner Firstbase ~ Look For The Play On The Lead Runner First!
In this sacrifice bunt runner first base, each player has a specific assignment within the situation.
P: Has bunts up the third base side and in front of the mound. If the 3B fields the bunt, the pitcher goes to cover 3B.
C: Has balls out in front of the plate, as well as making the call as to where the play is going. Look to backup first base, in case there is a DP attempt.
1B: Holds runner on, breaks on the pitch, responsible for balls bunted up the first base side.
2B: Covers first base.
SS: Covers second base.
3B: Reads the bunt, covers 3B, unless the ball is bunted on the third base side, where the pitcher will not be able to field it. He must then make a quick decision and come field the bunt.
LF: Comes in behind 3B to backup a possible throw from first base to third, should the runner from 1B keep going.
CF: Heads straight for 2B, to backup the possible throw to second.
RF: Comes to the right field line to backup the throw to first base.
