Grounded Into Double Plays Leaders: 2015 MLB Season

Grounded Into Double Plays measures the times when a batter hits a ground ball that leads to a double play being executed by the defense without a fielding error on either of the putouts.

Also referred to as "GIDP."

More about Grounded Into Double Plays Leaders

Grounded into double plays leaders hit into the most double plays, as defined by two runners being forced out on the basepaths as the result of a single ground ball.  While hitting into a high number of double plays is never a good thing for a batter, league leaders in GIDP are often among the better hitters for a number of reasons.  For starters, many of them are in the batting lineup in a spot (usually third or fourth) in which the batters ahead of them are more likely to reach base, thus making it more likely to be put in a position in which grounding into a double play is possible.  Second, many of the leaders are less likely to strike out, and hitting into a double play is more likely with hitters more likely to make contact with the ball.  For example, the 2013 leader in strikeouts (Chris Carter) only hit into eight double plays in 2013, despite batting 110 times with a runner on first and less than two outs.
