One answer:The batter cannot carry the bat to first base it is illegal in Baseball. Another answer:In Major League Baseball, there is no rule prohibiting the batter from carrying the bat to first base, as long as such action does not interfere with defensive play. I've never seen it done, but there is no rule specifically prohibiting it.

Other leagues may have rules addressing this question. You would need to ask a league official from your specific league.

How many yards in a first down?

It depends. A standard first down is earned when the ball is progressed 10 yards. If the defense earns a penalty however, the distance can be changed by the amount of the penalty - resulting in shorter distances or entire first downs altogether. Also if the offense is given a penalty and is backed up down the field, it can take many yards to get a first down (sometimes more than 30). A "standard" first down is earned when the ball is progressed 10 yards without any major incidents, however.
