Safety Squeeze

What is Safety Squeeze?

A type of squeeze play, which is a sacrifice bunt with a runner on third, where the runner waits to leave third base until the bunt has been hit. This is opposite of a Suicide Squeeze where the runner at third leaves the moment the pitcher begins their pitch.

Sporting Charts explains Safety Squeeze

The Safety Squeeze, as the name suggests, is the safer type of a sacrifice bunt with a man on third as the runner can judge the bunt to ensure it is placed successfully and will allow the runner to make it home safely. The risk with the Safety Squeeze is the delay in the start of the run, which will give the offense some more time to get the runner heading home out.
