I misspoke. Wally Backman’s Brooklyn Cyclones team was “only” second in the New York-Penn league in bunts this season. They were six bunts behind the club that bunted most, but 21 bunts ahead of the club that bunted third most. It was his 2004 Lancaster JetHawks* that bunted 27 more times than any other team, and his 2003 Birmingham Barons that bunted 19 more times than anyone else. It’s actually the caught stealing that is more alarming, as his teams are routinely first in caught stealing and somewhere in the middle in steals.
Second correction: It’s JetHawks, not JayHawks, as I originally wrote and someone lovingly pointed out in the comments. I have no idea what a JetHawk is.
