No RBI when you GIDP

Why is that? You get an RBI for a typical groundout.

Most times when you GIDP the other team is conceeding the run in order to get the two outs.

Another instance where baseball rules defy logic.

Agreed....

But teams also conceed the run somtimes with 1 out and a man on third if they were up but a few (especially later in the game) and a player who grounds out can still get an RBI.

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
