It is long believed that a fellow by the name of Dickey Pearce invented the bunt. It's exact date is impoosible to say, but he played Baseball in the 1860's and quit playing in 1876 in St. Louis. In baseball's very early days, a ball was considered fair as long as it started fair. After that, it could go anywhere. Pearce invented the bunt, dragging the ball down the first-base line and eventually into foul territory, making him almost impossible to retire. At the time, Pearce's play was called the "tricky hit." Even after the rules changed and balls had to stay fair, Pearce was the master of the bunt. Other rumors include John McGraw, Hugh Jennings, and Rube Foster as the inventors of the bunt, but the truth is, baseball's first ever shortstop, Dickey Pearce, was the first to do it.
