A runner on first base with no outs has a 43 percent chance of scoring; a runner on second base with one out, say one who has been advanced there by a sacrifice bunt, has only a 45 percent chance of scoring. So the sacrifice increases the chance by only 2 percent! A runner who successfully steals second base with no outs, however, has a 60 percent chance of scoring a run-decidedly better odds.

All ballplayers have a fielding percentage stat listed for them. Anything over 980 is pretty good. Less than that is average or poor depending on the numbers. The lower the number, the more poor he performs.

I can't find an exact percentage but I know it would be up there because they usually score on a sacrifice fly.

I would say from all my score keeping stats about 10.6 out are made at first
