Its a double play that goes 3B to 2B to 1B. It's like alot of baseball phrases that come from nautical terms (on deck, in the hold, submarine pitcher). Around the horn was how sailors got from the Pacific to the Atlantic before the Panama Canal.
Nice, thanks Tavish. So why were so many nautical terms used to describe the actions on the baseball diamond? Were a lot of the earlier baseball players ex-sailors?
Btw, love that Carl Pavano fact in your signature.
I guess we know from his stats that who dumped who.
