Team doubles allowed per game is the number of doubles a team’s pitching staff allows for every team game.
More about Team Doubles Allowed Per Game
Generally speaking better pitching staffs will not appear at the top of this list, however doubles allowed by themselves are not the best predictor of a team’s overall pitching effectiveness. A team’s stadium can be configured to allow more doubles than average while also restricting overall offense, such as by having foul poles a longer distance than average from home plate, thus encouraging more doubles but fewer home runs. The past few years have seen a decline in doubles allowed per game, consistent with an overall decrease in offense in general, and the current numbers are more closely aligned with what was seen up to two decades ago.
