Re: Poll: Should the half/slow/partial swings in this video be legal?
what is a bunt? you are putting the ball in play on a player playing deep to try and get on base or sacrifice yourself to move a runner. In slo-pitch the sacrifice doesn't come into play, but taping the ball the way all these swings were done, are OUTS in my opinion. Now if you "bunt" a ball on something that fooled you, good knuckleball or whatever, that you took a full swing and a tap hit happened, that's fine and that does happen as guys are throwing the knuckleball much better nowadays. I see that a lot in league play where guys of my lower ability get fooled and that happens, not guys playing on MAJOR teams. Sorry but these are all DBO's and should be yelled loud and immediately, not 5-10 seconds later like the 1 video showed.
