Lead Runner Out

Option Two:
Get out at 1st
Decision Number One:
If ball bunted hard to first baseman and it is fielded cleanly take a shot at the lead out.
• Fielder cannot hesitate with his decision.
Decision Two:
If the ball is bunted softly the fielder must take the out at first base.
• If the fielder hesitates with his decision he must take the out at first base.
• If the fielder bobbles the ball he must take the out at first base.

The fielder should listen for his team to call the base to throw to.  Usually the catcher will make the call.
