Why watch Major League Baseball’s Home Run Derby when you can watch bunting instead?
I have no idea when this clip is from (I think it’s actually from a few years ago), but people were sharing it on social media during last night’s derby, an illustration of what other baseball leagues do with their All-Star festivities.
In Korea they literally lay down two tarps that have numbers on them, like it’s curling or something, and the players bunt for points:

I like it. I think we need to add a bunting contest to our All-Star week.
