I am a softball player. Let me say first, bunting is basically half the swing as hitting. Hitting consists of swinging a bat across your entire body. Bunting, you swing 180 degrees and stop and let the ball hit your bat. Bunting makes the ball go in play at a small distance; hitting the ball can make your ball go anywhere!
There are several skills in softball....The general ones are catching and throwing, fielding, batting, base runnning....the specialized one is pitching. Under the general skills there are skills you have to learn as well like bunting, stealing...etc
