Default Power hitters that are bunting cards/photos??

We all have seen the "pitchers that are batting" thread.

How about some cool cards of power hitters in surprising bunting "type" positions?

Based on this picture, it does not appear that Schmidt had very good form bunting.....can't imagine that he was asked to drop too many bunts down in his career.

I have looked at this card before and I don't think that is a bunt. Looks like a weakly hit ground ball (maybe back to the pitcher) and Schmidt is starting to run and drop his bat.

Cardinal fans will remember a key moment late in the season in 1982 at a game in Veteran's Park when Schmidt came up to face Bruce Sutter with one out and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th. I think the Cardinals were up by one. Sutter induced a 1-2-3 double play to end the game. A big moment in their World Series winning year.

Sorry non Cardinal fans for I digress!
