Jarrod Dyson and the beauty of a bunted baseball

We’re on the back fields of the baseball complex in Surprise, Arizona. It’s not yet noon, but you can already feel the heat beating down on your head. They say it’s a dry heat, but I’m pretty sure they say the same thing about Hell. Coach Rusty Kuntz has already thrown ball after ball off the centerfield wall so the Kansas City outfielders could practice playing the carom. After that Rusty threw about 140 pitches in batting practice. Now he’s working with outfielder Jarrod Dyson on bunting. Everyone else has gone inside—it’s just Rusty, Jarrod and me.
