  1. suicide squeeze play

    A suicide squeeze play, in baseball, is a strategic move where the runner on third base begins to run towards home plate as soon as the pitcher begins their throw. Simultaneously, the batter is expected to bunt the ball, thus distracting the fielders and enabling the runner to safely reach home plate. Since the runner starts running before the ball is bunted, it's called a "suicide" squeeze because if the batter misses the ball, the runner is likely to be tagged out.
