A sacrifice bunt or fly has never been considered an at-bat.
No. Neither a sacrifice fly nor a sacrifice bunt count as an official time at bat.
Sacrifice. Either a sacrifice bunt or sacrifice fly. Neither counts as an at bat.
No, it is not considered a sacrifice unless the batter is advanced as a result of a bunt. Also, a fly ball that is caught is only considered a sacrifice if a runner tags and scores on the play. If a runner tags at 1B or 2B on the caught fly ball, and advances one base, it is not considered a sacrifice fly.
No. A sacrifice is only recorded on a fly ball or a bunt. There is no such thing as a "sacrifice ground out".
No, an attempted bunt can never be ruled an infield fly.
A base on balls, being hit by the pitch, a sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly. None of these are official at-bats.
a sacrifice bunt is when you sacrifice yourself so another player can score
Yes. The only time it is not an official "At Bat", is if a batter reaches base on a base on balls, hit by pitch or catcher interference. A batter is also not charged with an "At Bat" if he hits a sacrifice fly (a fly ball out that results in a runner tagging up and scoring), or a sacrifice bunt that advances a runner or runners. He is also not charged with an "At Bat" if the batter reaches base as a result of an error on a sacrifice fly or sacrifice bunt.
According to MLB rule 10.01.a.1 only a sacrifice bunt or fly out does not count as an at-bat. A ground out counts a an at-bat
No, a sacrifice bunt does not count as an at bat.
No, since a sacrifice bunt does not count as an at bat the batter's average stays the same.
You bunt to get on base, just like a hit. You also bunt to sacrifice in order to move runners on base.
Yes as long as the runner advances Assuming you mean the runner tags up on a fly ball and advances to second, it is not scored as a sacrifice, but, simply as a fly out and the batter is charged with a time at bat. If the batter bunt a ground ball, the runner would not be required to "tag up" to advance and the batter would be credited with a sacrifice. If the batter is attempting a sacrifice bunt and pops up and the runner, tags up and somehow advances to second the batter is not credited with a sacrifice.
A batter is not charged with an at bat when he is credited with a sacrifice fly or sacrifice bunt. The main issue is the umpire's judgement: did the batter purposely sacrifice himself in order to move up the runner(s) with less than 2 outs? If so-- and if the runners did move up or score successfully-- he shall not be charged with an at bat. Baseball's accounting therefore does not penalize a batter if he sacrificed himself for the team's benefit. (An at bat with a fly or bunt out would lower the batter's batting average.)

Yes. At bats are counted pretty much identically to baseball. Thing that would result in no at bat would be: walk, hit by pitch, sacrifice fly, sacrifice bunt.
No, a bunt that is scored as a sacrifice is never charged as an at-bat.
No, a successful sacrifice bunt does not count as an at bat. If the bunt is unsuccessful, the batter is charged with an at bat. Similarly, if the batter beats out the play and is awarded a hit, an at bat is counted. Sacrifice flies, walks, and getting hit by pitch also do not count as at bats. All of these are recorded as Plate Appearances.
A sacrifice bunt.
A batter's plate appearance counts as an at-bat unless * he hits a sacrifice bunt or sacrifice fly, * he receives a base on balls, * he is hit by a pitch, or * he is awarded first base because of interference or obstruction.
Official baseball rule 10.09 (a) Score a sacrifice bunt when, before two are out, the batter advances one or more runners with a bunt and is put out at first base, or would have been put out except for a fielding error. (b) Score a sacrifice bunt when, before two are out, the fielders handle a bunted ball without error in an unsuccessful attempt to put out a preceding runner advancing one base.
A batter can bunt anytime ...whether it's wise to bunt is a different story.
I would consider it a hit/bunt. It is a sacrifice bunt if the bunter knows they will get out so another runner can advance or get a run. Hope this kind of helps
At Bat- A turn trying to get a hit, every time you go up to the plate to try to hit, it counts as an at bat, unless you get hit by the pitch or you do a sacrifice bunt or fly out.
