In the game of baseball, a sacrifice hit is another name for a sacrifice bunt, a ball which has been intentionally hit softly with the intention of advancing a runner on-base at the cost of an out.
"SH" stands for "sacrifice hit."
A base on balls, being hit by the pitch, a sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly. None of these are official at-bats.
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
When you give up yourself and get out, but advance another runner. One type of sacrifice is a sacrifice fly. One runner gets a run and one gets out.
It counts as an at bat in all cases except the sacrifice. If a batter attempts a sacrifice bunt and one of the infielders makes an error when fielding or throwing the ball, the batter is credited with a sacrifice and no time at bat.
The abbreviation SF stands for Sacrifice Flies.
There is no sacrifice ground ball in baseball because you don't try to sacrifice yourself to advance the runner on the ground ball. Also, on a bunt, it's hard to get the leading runner anyway, so the fielder most of the time goes for the batter at first. On a ground ball however, the fielder most of the time has an easy option for the lead runner as well as the batter.
Though it's not listed in the Baseball Almanac Glossary, I have heard from a couple of sources it means "sacrifice bunt." I'm still researching this, though.
A sacrifice fly or when a batter flies out and a runner tags up and scores this doesnt count as an at bat
Probably Sacrifice Fly. This is where there is a baserunner who advances by tagging up on a fly ball hit by the batter.
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.
if you give yourself up to advance the runner. ex. if u bunt a guy over to second but you get out
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.)

Sometimes you have to do something your really don't like, or actually give up something, for the benefit of the entire team, such as working a weekend, or other sacrifice. A sacrifice bunt in baseball is a direct reference to a team situation.
SH in Baseball stands for "Sacrifice Hit" - also known as a Sacrifice Bunt. It is when a batter comes up with a runner or two on base and less than two outs, and intentionally bunts the ball in a way that the fielders have to get him out- which allows the other runners to move up a base or even score. The batter "sacrifices" himself to allow the other runners to advance.
Since S is for sacrifice, r for run, e error, K is the most powerful letter in the word.
Strike In the box score an "s" denotes a sacrifice bunt. This results in an out for the batter, but the baserunner moves up a base.
