that all depends on the situation, if a girl on base is stealing its to try to draw the infeild in and get in the cathers eye sight so she has a harder time throwing that runner out. And sometimes its to just draw the infeild in. it all depends on the situation!

What is a Butcher-Boy single in baseball?

It's when you square around to bunt, but then bring the bat back and swing away. Typically used to try and punch the ball to the infield area just vacated by the defense who has players moving in response to the bunt attempt. Since the runners are on the move during a bunt attempt, they can frequently move up 2 bases if the butcher boy swing is succesful in driving the ball into the shallow outfield. It is definitelly different than a Baltimore chop.
