Baseball Lab: Learning The Physics Behind Bunting

Bunting is one of baseball’s fundamental skills. It’s also a great example of physics.

When a hitter bunts, the ball’s force pushes the bat backward as it bounces forward and (hopefully) lands somewhere in fair territory. And on “NESN Cluhouse,” Gary Striewski went to American University to learn from a physics professor why that happens.

Check out the science of bunting in the video above.
