Sac Bunt Option


Sac Bunt Option

I was wondering if there is a way to allow players to sac bunt?..shouldn't everyone be at least able to try?...I'm kinda bummed cause I had the perfect catcher lined up to spend the whole season batting 9th and sacrifice bunting only to find out he can't...in someways I built the wholr team around it....even if he isn't that good maybe he gets hit...thats fine with me. Thanks

Re: Sac Bunt Option

In your Team Strategy is the option to finetune percentage of opportunities you wish to sac bunt, also w a Man on 1st and 1 out.
Under PH/Bunting in Edit Lineups, is the ability to toggle certain players on/off for sacrifice or surprise bunts.

Re: Re: Sac Bunt Option

Thanks some player just have N/A where the toggle switch should be

Re: Sac Bunt Option

Home run hitters by default will not sac bunt....hence the -NA-

" Home run hitters by default will not sac bunt....hence the -NA-"

Not exactly true, Ricky Henderson, Eric Davis, Tim Raines, Bobby Abreu and others are Home run hitters who also bunted, I think it makes a difference how fast they are

You can give Babe Ruth the option to bunt and he certainly qualifies as a Home Run hitter, so speed is a big factor

Re: Sac Bunt Option

Think that’s what they meant, but yeah, to be more specific, the straight up (slow) low AVG power hitters

Re: Re: Sac Bunt Option

I still think anyone should be able to at least attempt a sac bunt...it should be like real mlb no one knows how but sometimes they try.

Interesting strategy

Re: Sac Bunt Option

Your lineup strategy was built around your catcher batting 9th and sacrifice bunting? If so, I think you have much more significant problems than the sim not allowing your catcher to bunt.
