Can someone explain?

Why a sacrifice fly doesn't count as an AB but a groundout producing the exact same result counts as an 0-1? Seems rather arbritrary to me.

Until this season, I always thought that a sac fly resulted in an 0 for 1 at-bat with an RBI. I could have sworn it :-?

sac bunts and sacrifice flys dont count as at-bats, cuz the rules assume that under certain conditions, the player intentionally wants to do it for the better of the team. I'm just guessing that ground-out RBIs dont count cuz players dont "intentionally" want to ground out, and its hardly ever for the better of the team.
