I don't get it. Why would you want bunting tips from Nick Punto? He sucks!

Are these only available in VHS format? I dont think I even own a VHS player anymore, I'd be down for the DVD version though, both videos sound like great learning tools.

Twinswin... yes, remember the Twins are a SMALL MARKET TEAM, only teams like the Yankees, BoSox and Angels can afford DVDs.

Punto put on another bunting clinic last night in Chicago. With a runner on 1st an no outs in the 11th he fouled back two bunt attempts and then flied out leaving the go ahead run sitting on 1st. Impressive, I bet he could fit that little clip onto his video somewhere.

I can imagine the jazzy saxaphone and hip eighties beat playing in the background of these amazing videos.
