  1. Sacrifice fly

    In baseball, a sacrifice fly is a batted ball that satisfies four criteria: ⁕There are fewer than two outs when the ball is hit. ⁕The ball is hit to the outfield, or to infield foul territory. ⁕The batter is put out because an outfielder catches the ball on the fly. ⁕A runner who is already on base scores on the play. It is called a "sacrifice" fly because the batter presumably intends to cause a teammate to score a run, while sacrificing his own ability to do so.
