This is not a sacrifice. It is counted as an RBI though unless there is a double play as result of the FC.

Yes. While a sacrifice fly does not count against your batting average it does against your on base percentage. On base % = (hits + walks + hits by pitch) / (at-bats + walks + hits by pitch + sacrifice flies)

How do you compute a baseball players batting average?

Number of hits divided by the official at bats. An error or fielder's choice counts against a batting average as an at bat, but it does not count as a hit. A sacrifice or walk does not count against a batter's at bat totals. These are plate appearances which are different. So, a batter could have 140 plate appearances, 100 at bats, and 30 hits. You would divide 30 by 100, which would give you a batting average of .300.

What is the difference between appearances and at bats when reviewing baseball statistics?

Plate appearances is the total number of times a player has stood at the plate ... regardless of outcome. At-bats are counted when a batter either scores an 'out' or scores a 'hit'. If the batter receives a Base-on-balls, hit by pitch, or reaches base as the result of an error or Fielder's choice, it doesn't count as an at-bat. Batting average is figured as hits/at-bats. On-base percentage is figured as #of times on base / plate appearances This answer is wrong... If the batter reaches base as a result of an error or fielder's choice it still counts as an at bat, if the batter records an out that results in a sacrifice fly it does not count as an at bat. Also a base on balls includes the possibility of hit by pitch in its definition.
