Catcher's Bunt Drill (Guelph Minor Softball Association)

PrintCatcher's Bunt Drill

Purpose:  To practice the catcher to field bunts. It’s important to put several softball fielding tips in catching drills to improve catcher’s performance.

Procedure: As catcher, you’re positioned at home plate in full equipment. A coach or another catcher will stand behind you with softballs. Start in your receiving position as if there was a runner on base. The coach or other catcher will toss out a “bunt” to various spots on the infield. You will spring forward and set your feet to field the bunt properly and make the throw. After that or four bunts, switch with your partner. Bunts should be tossed in various directions to work on different approaches.

Concentrate on the footwork involved with fielding bunts correctly. Catchers should be working on developing quick feet. Make sure they keep their masks on while making the throw.
