Bunt to Chop Swing

Question

Guest BigVic

A batter may come to a bunting stance, then go back to a batting stance and take a full swing.

However, may a batter come to a bunting stance and instead of "tapping" the ball, take a half swing while in the bunting stance?

I see in the little league rules under Rule 2.00 Definition of terms a Bunt is ...tapped slowly.  Later in the in the TEE BALL note it says a "half swing" is not allowed.  This reference is for TEE BALL only.

So my question is that a half swing is not "tapping" the ball, this means that it is not allowed and the batter will be called back and given a strike?

Thanks,

That doesn’t prevent F5 from getting a broken nose. It just punishes the batter for doing it and hopefully not getting F5’s nose. Seems you should have a “come to Jesus” meeting with the coaches. :)

Unfortunately, the laser system that will instantly disintegrate any baseball illegally hit is prohibitively expensive.

We used delayed dead ball. On the off chance batter hits into a DP. Don’t want to take that away from the defense. 

I considered that...but decided it was more about preventing the practice than punishing.

In two years we have not had to invoke the rule.
