About the Actor:

Bunting is a very big part of the game of baseball. And when a bunt is laid down the right way, it is very difficult to defend. I have always been big on bunting and feel it can be taught at a young age. There are basically two types of bunts: the square bunt and the pivot bunt. My preference is the pivot bunt because the players just pivot and do not have to lift their feet. Once in a playoff game I had a player square bunt and he put down a perfect bunt and beat it out we all thought. The only problem was when he lifted his leg and put it down in a different position, it was right on home plate and he was called out. The best way to teach bunting for the first time is to practice with a soft covered ball or a rag ball which is described in The 59 Minute Baseball Practice video. With the rag balls or a soft covered ball, there is very little danger of getting hurt and the players can actually pitch to each other. Once they seem confident, move on to a hard ball with the coach pitching. There are many bunting strategies that can be used in a game. My favorite is with less than two out and a runner on third, bunt to the third baseman with the base runner bouncing toward home. when the third baseman releases the ball, the man on third runs home and he must slide.If it is a good bunt and the base runner breaks to home when he should, this is almost unstoppable. Remember that youth baseball players can practice bunting at a very young age. Seek out your high school coach to teach the proper technique. Also make sure your best bunters get a chance to swing away.


WINNING BASEBALL STRATEGIES is Marty Schupak's best work to date! ......highly recommended! --Hal Schweitzer, baseball coach

In this standalone follow-up to The 59 Minute Baseball Practice, Coach Marty Schupak scores another homer on the playing field of excellent baseball instructional tape aimed at players 10-12 years old. More than many coaches, Mr. Schupak recognizes that instruction needs to be mixed with fun in order to instill a love for the game. Winning Baseball Strategies is divided into sections-such as Backing Up and Defense, Cut Offs, Advanced Skill Strategy, etc.- concentrating on specific skills that are thoroughly explained and clearly demonstrated by players. Also included are recommended fun exercises such as Home Run Derby in which players hit balls with tennis rackets, and 10 Bonus Coaching Tips, one of which is the ever valuable advice to always under-coach rather than over-coach. Marty Schupak should clone himself and coach all the way across America to remind both coaches and players what our national pastime is all about-the simple joy and pleasure of playing the game. Since that s not presently possible, libraries should make sure that this wonderful program is available to their communities. Highly recommended. --Video Librarian Magazine

This program will enhance any youth baseball coach's ability to determine the best strategies to use for Little League games. WINNING BASEBALL STRATEGIES is a winner! --Tony Milewski, Coach Rockland Thunder
