plate appearance

Definitions

from Wiktionary, Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License

  • n. A batter's completed turn in the batter's box, that usually results in an at-bat or walk, but may also result in a hit-by-pitch, sacrifice fly, sacrifice hit, or catcher's interference. If the third out of an inning is recorded prior to completion of the batter's turn, no plate appearance is credited to the batter, and he will lead off his team's next turn at bat.
