More about Ground Into Double Plays Leaders

Pitching ground into double plays leaders induce the most number of ground balls that are turned into double plays. Also known as “a pitcher’s best friend,” leaders are not surprisingly likely to allow a higher than average percentage of balls hit into play against them be ground balls. Having above average infield defense is also helpful, particularly at the middle infield positions of shortstop and second base, as most double plays require fielding and releasing the ball faster than when fielding a ground ball with no runners on base. Ground ball double plays are very important “rally killers” in any pitcher’s arsenal.
