  Double play - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A slightly less common ground ball double play is the 5-4-3 double play, also called the "Around the Horn" double play which occurs on a ground ball hit to the third baseman (5), who throws to the second baseman (4) at second base, who then throws to the first baseman (3).
Other types of double plays occur when a fly ball is hit to the outfield or a line drive is hit to the infield, and caught, but a runner on the basepaths strays too far away from his base.
Another rare situation is the unassisted double play, which generally occurs when the second baseman or shortstop catches a soft, low line drive to retire the batter and steps on second base to put out the runner (by an obvious appeal) before he can tag up.

I also hope this FAQ will be useful to those people who already play double a lot, as I'm sure I'll have a different perspective then other people and maybe give some tips and techniques others haven't thought of.
Double requires far more center of mass motion then single play (which when played well requires very little), and thus burns more calories.
My personal recommendation is that you can start to play double when you are able to pass 4-5 foot songs on single.

 double play - The Boston Globe
The idea of combining it on a double CD didn't work, he says, because it would have asked too much of fans' finances and time.
It's a rare double album that works as well as OutKast's Grammy winning "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below." And even that disc is more like a simultaneous release of two individual discs, offering as it does one CD crafted by each of OutKast's principals, Andre 3000 and Big Boi.
The number of tracks won't play any part in the split (both discs have 12 songs), but something else is bound to affect sales.

 Double Play Review
The promotional copy for Double Play promises a tale of redemption, and Robert B. Parker, the accomplished writer of crime fiction, delivers.
The year 1947, which was to become a pivotal year in American sports and society, now has the potential to become pivotal for Joseph Burke, whose heart and conscience have been on leave long after his physical wounds have healed.
Double Play is a singularly American story of personal and societal healing that will appeal to the fans of the hard-boiled and gritty tale with a touch of grace -- in this case the grace of Jackie Robinson -- thrown in to ensure that it will all work out in the end.

He plays to a scratch handicap at Shady Canyon GC in Irvine, Calif., his scoring buttressed by a tour-caliber short game that allowed him to win the ADT Golf Skills Challenge last year against a field that included Greg Norman, Colin Montgomerie and Padraig Harrington.
Michael Jordan once expressed an interest in playing the PGA Tour, as though his ability to put the ball in the hole in one sport would allow him to do so successfully in another.
Moreover, he has played enough golf with tour players to know that, unlike Jordan, he would sound foolish were he boldly to declare his intention to play the PGA or Champions tours.

 DOUBLE PLAY JUST 2 WACKY By BRIAN COSTELLO - New York Post Online Edition: Seven
October 5, 2006 -- The Mets' second-inning double play caused an avalanche of adjectives yesterday at Shea.
"It might be the play of the game because if they get a better jump it's two runs right there and then after that they scored one more," Valentin said.
Though the play was unbelievable, improbable, crazy, wacky, bizarre and strange, it was not unprecedented.

Doubling or tripling the size of the city that surrounds it will not double or triple the revenues produced by a single venue.
While city size appears to play a role in stadium receipts, a new stadium seems to be the more important factor.
There are good reasons to expect the impact of sports stadiums on the particular city in which they play to be different from their effect on the metropolitan area as a whole.

Eckstein, who batted.292 in the regular season, is 0-for-9 against the Tigers with a strikeout and a double-play ball to end the eighth inning in the Cardinals' 3-1 loss in Game 2.
He's hitting.160 overall (8-for-50) in the postseason with two extra-base hits, a homer and a double, and two RBIs.
That, of course, is a sticky subject since the Gold Glove third baseman was benched twice in the postseason because he wasn't hitting.

Burke also falls for Lauren, a self-destructive society girl with mob connections whom he worked for before Robinson, and it's from Lauren's troubles and the threat of violence surrounding Robinson that the novel's hard, smart action arises.
Burke is a tough guy, and the narrative not set around baseball fields takes place in the white and fl underworlds as Burke plays various gangsters against one another to protect both Lauren and Robinson.
Parker, always a clean writer, has never written so spare and tight a book; this should be required reading for all aspiring storytellers.

The two blows are too much for Burke and after trying a career as a boxer he ends up being a muscle man. Doing his job he makes some enemies and has to move on to another job, which comes from Branch Rickey, the owner and general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers.
So with all of the death threats Robinson is getting for daring to play baseball with white players, it is something else that threatens to get him killed.
But what salvages "Double Play" is that scattered through the chapters are memories from "Bobby," as Parker recalls what it was like as a 15-year-old living in Boston to follow Jackie Robinson's historic 1947 season.

Every once in a while he breaks away from his various detective formulas (there are now three patterns evolving with three different main characters) and writes something that tears at your heart, gets inside your head, and leaves with you with thoughts you had never had before.

But with two strikes on Bernie Williams, Joe Torre tried to stay out a potential double play by starting the runners, and ended up running right into one.
