Bunt defense is critical to your success. Even more specifically, catcher bunt defense is important to work on.
While catchers will not likely be fielding the bulk of the bunts, there will be times when the opponent puts down a soft bunt in front of the plate.
In this weeks tip, I explain one of the many catcher drills from inside the Covey Sports Impact Coaching Academy.
This is a great drill for working on bunt defense with your catchers. We call this the “partner bunt drill,” but in all honesty, it’s probably not a great name for the drill.
No matter what you call it this is a simple, but great drill for getting your catchers a bunch of bunt defense reps in a short amount of time!
This drill works best with more than 1 catcher to keep it moving quickly, although it is possible to make it work with just one catcher. She will simply get lots of conditioning!
