-Questions & Notes:

  • Safety considerations: 

    • Pitches should be slow and bunts snot hit hard. 

  • Variations:

    • Speed Pepper: Same as Right-Left Consecutive Bunt Pepper but players count how many successful punts they can make in 2 minutes. The player pitching must always pitch from the pitcher’s spot.

    • Through the Infield Pepper: Same as Right-Left Consecutive Bunt Pepper but fielders back up another 5 paces and pitcher throw the ball at half speed and hitters hits the ball at half speed. Hitter tries to find an open spot between the fielders. Count how many consecutive hits out of 40 and how many balls got through the infield. 

  • As a cool-down:

    • Works well as a cool-down but to slow things down add 2 more fielders.
