  Double (baseball) - Definition, explanation
In baseball, a double is the act of a batter safely reaching second base by striking the ball and getting to second before being made out, without the benefit of a fielder's misplay (see error) or another runner being put out on a fielder's choice.
Typically, a double is a well-hit ball into the outfield that is able to get into the "gap" between the center fielder and one of the corner outfielders or is hit up the foul lines.
To be able to get a large number of doubles, one must have decent power and hitting skills to be able to hit it to a double area and also be able to run well enough to beat a throw by the outfielders.
