BUNTING STRIKE RULE MYTH
A strike is an attempt to hit the ball. Simply holding the bat over the plate is not an attempt. This is umpire judgment.

Rule 2.00 STRIKE

Rule 2.00 BUNT is a batted ball not swung at, but INTENTIONALLY met with the bat.
The key words are "intentionally met"
If no attempt is made to make contact with a ball outside the strike zone, it should be called a ball. An effort must be made to intentionally meet the ball with the bat.
