In baseball can the person with the bat ground their bat in the same way that cricketers do?

I notice that when baseball players dive for the next base, they do so feet first, whereas when cricketers dive towards the crease, they do so head first, with bat held out in front.

    Baseball players can dive any way they want to, but they can’t hold the bat. As long as they stay on the white chalk, they’re fine.

    they can dive both head first and feet first. Theres no wickets, theres bases.

    The correct term is ’slide’. They can slide head first or feet first into bases, but they must drop the bat after they hit the ball.

    In baseball you can either slide @ 2nd, 3rd, or Home plate either head-first or feet-first. Once you hit the baseball, you can only run a maximum of 5 feet before you have to drop the bat according to MLB rules…But I’ve seen people run with the bat in their hands until they get to first…so the point is unless you are very famous in your league, DROP THE BAT @ 5 FEET because it is tiring running to 1st base with a bat i your hand…
