How Do You Bunt in MLB the Show 21?

A bunt is typically performed before the pitch is even thrown. Since it shows that the player is not preparing to bunt, it throws off opposing players to play catch up while the offense is attempting to advance. This helps teams get run scores during a match if bases are loaded or help advance the player to the next base. The drawback to performing this maneuver is if the pitcher is preparing to catch the bunt which can get two outs if they quickly throw it to first base. Turning this con to a pro is sacrificing weak batters that are ahead of other athletes with strong stats that can guarantee you a run score or home runs on the field.
