    Just curious by what you mean as an accidental event. Are you saying that something like a sacrifice fly is an unintentional result of an at bat with a runner on third base, or is it something that is more in line with any other out?

    I gotta say, I bow to you on this particular topic.

    Give me some more time and I'll be back with my own response, though. This is quite a bit to take in all at once!

    It's generally considered that hitting sac flies is an accident. There is no discernable skill that allows a player to hit a ball just deep enough. That player was trying for something more, not to make an out.

    The only productive out that comes as a result of a skillset that I can think of, would be from a bunt.
    Suck it up cupcake.
