When bunting in Little League does the batter have to remove the bat from the strike zone or is this considered offered at or attempt?

In little league like the majors when bunting and you miss the pitch it is a strike. It depends on the umpire; if he thinks the batter offered at the pitch, he will call the strike. Simply holding the bat in the strike zone is not offering at the pitch unless the umpire decides that. It is a safer bet to teach your batters to pull the bat out of the strike zone if they decide to not bunt at the pitch.
