The Jury wrote:I haven't read the MLB rulebook, maybe someone can answer this accurately off the top of his/her head:
A player is never awarded an RBI for grounding into a double play? Or is it simply that many double plays are force-outs ending the inning so the run does not count?
Never is the correct answer,
My thoughts on this is you are 1 player. You as 1 player made 2 out's therefore you actually hurt your teams cahnces. So you shouldn't get credit for the run that scored since you caused 2 outs.
On a bround ball you only get yourself out. Same applies with a GRD just my 2 cents though
