Taking the bunt away from young players is like removing the claws from a cat. It is taking an important weapons away from a young player.
Bunting is a fundamental part of the game. It can provide many functions. First off, it teaches players and their teammates not be selfish.

Lastly, players who aren’t seeing the ball well, can benefit from bunting as it is a good way to see and better time the pitcher.
