Most programs use swings as a monitor for their batting practice. For example, each player gets two bunts, ten swings, and one suicide bunt. But, you might want to experiment with an alternative. Instead of swings being the monitor, try time. For example, give each hitter a minute and a half or two minutes for b.p. This forces the player to concentrate harder on getting their bunts down. It also forces the batting practice pitcher to throw strikes. This gives the hitter the opportunity to get more than ten swings if they maintain a good pace.
