Double

Sport: Baseball

A double is credited to a hitter when they successfully hit the ball into play and manage to reach second base safely without an intervening error or an attempt by the defensive team to put out another runner occurring. If any defensive errors do occur during the play, the play will be scored differently. Doubles are also known as ‘two-base hits’.

Where Are Doubles Hit?

Hitters tend to hit doubles either into a gap, down the field lines, or off of the outfield wall.
