The rule term "double play" or "double play" is used as a record on the defensive side.On the other hand, "double play" is also a rule term, but this is a hit record, and because the definition is different, the number of double play on the defensive side and the number of double play on the offensive side do not always match.

If 3 outs are recorded in a series of playsTriple killing(Sanjusatsu) orTriple playThis is also recorded as a "triple play" on the defensive side.


Force double play

A batter hits a fair goro ball, a runner in force is the first out (force out), and a batter-runner or another runner in force is the second out. The case of being killed by is called force double play.


  • With no death or first base, the batter hits a ground ball and the fielder throws it to second base.Force playThe first base runner is out, and the ball is thrown to the first base to make the batter runner out.
  • With no death or first and second base, the batter hits a ground ball in front of the third baseman, the third baseman steps on the third base, then throws the ball to the second base, and the second base runner and the first base runner are out in the order of force play.

Reverse force double play

The batter hits the ball on the fair ground, the first out is the force out (or the batter-runner's out), and the runner whose force is released by this first play reaches the next base. The double play that was established by becoming a tag-out is called reverse force double play.If a runner other than the out-runner reaches home base while this double play is established with one death, a score will be granted (to the batter).RBIIs not recorded).


  • The batter hits Goro's ball with no death or first base, the first baseman catches and touches the first base (batter runner out), then throws the ball to the second base, and the player who receives it touches the first base runner running from the first base.

  • In a scene where the runner is on third base with no death or one death, the batter after two strikesSqueeze playOr the third base runner goes to home baseStealAnd the batter goes out by striking out[Note 3][Note 4]Then, the catcher who catches the pitch touches the third base runner as it is and puts it out.

Defensive side

Double play

Double play collapse

Double play collapse refers to the case where a double play is attempted but fails.For example, if you try force double play when there is a runner on the first base with no death or one death, and you succeed in making the first base runner force out, but the throwing to the first base is delayed or deviated and the batter runner is used on the first base. And so on (even if the ball is missed, the fielder who throws the ball will not record a mistake unless the runner is given an extra base).

As a play that you often see, if the batter hits the infield goro at the time of XNUMXst and XNUMXrd base, the defense side will try force double play and let the XNUMXst base runner / batter runner out instead of outing the XNUMXrd base runner. And.This is because if the force double play is established, even if the third base runner touches the home base before that, no points will be scored (.Force playSee also).However, he forced the first base runner to force out on the second base, but it is possible that he could not throw the first base in time and could only get one out.In the case of such a double play collapse, he can score if the third base runner has advanced to home base.At this time, to the batterSacrificeAnd double play (below) are not recorded, but at bats and RBIs are recorded.In live broadcasts, it may be said that "the score during the double play collapse of XX (player)".


Double hit

Double hit(It's a mess) Is a batter record, "by fair goroForce double playorReverse force double playIs recorded when[Note 5].

Since double play occurs by other than double play, the number of double play records is generally less than the number of double play records on the defensive side.The double play is done by the batterBuntEven if you do, if the double play is completed by the hit ball (excluding the flying ball), it will be recorded as a double play hit.

Even if the fielder (stabber) who takes the second out in an attempt to complete the double play makes a mistake in catching the ball and only one out is taken and the runner remains, the batter will record the double play.This could result in two double play hits recorded in one inning.[Note 6]..On the other hand, if it is judged that the fielder who took the first out (the Assistant of the second out) did not throw the ball badly and could not get the out, it will not be a double play.[Note 7]..Also, unless this causes the runner (not limited to the runner who tried to get out) to advance to an extra base, the fielder who throws the ball will not record any missteps.[Note 8].

If a double play is recorded for the batter, the batter will not record the RBI even if another runner has scored.[Note 9].

Example: 1 and 2 are double play (RBI 0), 3 is not double play (RBI 1).

  1. The batter at the first and third bases without deathGoroHit the ball, the fielder touches the second base and makes the first base runnerForce outThen, the ball was thrown to the first base and the batter-runner was out, but in the meantime, the third-base runner reached the home base.
  2. At the time of XNUMXst and XNUMXrd base, the batter hit the ball of Goro, the fielder touched the XNUMXnd base to force out the XNUMXst base runner, and made a good throw to the XNUMXst base, but the batter dropped the ball (mistake) by the XNUMXst baseman. I made the runner alive on the first base.Meanwhile, the third base runner reached home base.
  3. At the time of XNUMXst and XNUMXrd base, the batter hit the ground ball, the fielder touched the second base to force out the first base runner, and then sent the ball to the first base. I have.Meanwhile, the third base runner reached home base.

Right-handed batters are generally left-handed battersSwitch hitterThere is a tendency for more double play hits than.This is because the distance to the first base is one and a half steps farther from the left at bat than the left at bat, and when the right batter swings, the body of the right batter faces the third base, so the start tends to be delayed compared to the left batter who faces the first base. Because.In addition, double play will increase even for strong hitters with high hitting speed.In fact, among the top 1 players in the total number of double play hits in Nippon Professional Baseball belowTokuhiro KomadaAll but right-handed hitters[Note 10](Even the top 10 players in the season record, all but Komada are right-handed hitters).In addition, all 20 people hit 100 home runs or more in total with Komada (195).Akira KodamaEighteen people other than (130) have recorded more than 18 home runs.moreover,Regular turn at batAfter reaching 0 leagues, the players with 2 double play in the season[Note 11]There are 12 batters below, but there are no right-handed hitters (only Matsumoto is a switch hitter and all others are left-handed hitters) and all are less than 20 home runs in the season (19 for Fujita, 11 for Wakamatsu and Shimizu). All are single digits).
