When playing a baseball-like sport, the act of taking a mighty chop at the ball, but making only slight contact, so the ball hits the ground and rolls only a few pathetic feet. Essentially, it has the effect of a bunt while still allowing the batter to look manly (if foolish) by making a full swing.
Man bunts that fail to either advance a runner or land the batter safely on base are not acutally man bunts, but just plain ole' screwing up.
(Chris takes a hard swing, but just nips the ball. It rolls gingerly down the 3rd base line, but remains fair as Chris sprints safely to first base).
First Baseman: that was total BS
Chris: Pshaw! That was skill. Don't you know a good man bunt when you see one?
Most effective known kickball strategy for a man to get on base. Typically kickball rules will stipulate that a man must kick the ball across an imaginary diagonal line from 1st base to 3rd base. The goal of the man bunt is to kick the ball so that it will reach this line as slowly as possible. This will either force the pitcher to run down the bunt and attempt to throw the player out, which is impossible if the runner is not super slow, or the pitcher must wait out the kick hoping it won't cross the line and allow the runner to get on base.
Dude you totally should have man bunted there and you would have got on base.
I just got a double on a man bunt! This team sucks.
