Which Red grounded into the most double plays (career)?

04-27-2007, 01:19 PM
Ray Knight?

04-27-2007, 01:21 PM
A guy who played a long time and batted at the bottom of the order, I can see.

04-27-2007, 01:22 PM
I'd guess someone like Tony Perez.

04-27-2007, 01:22 PM
I'm guessing Petey. Lots of ABs, always put the ball in play.

04-27-2007, 01:23 PM
I'd go with Rose

04-27-2007, 01:25 PM
4 & 5 are kinda of a suprise

#8 is not, even less when saying he didn't really play here that long.

I'll post the answer at 2 o'clock to give others a chance to guess. Remember, no cheating.

I know what Red has grounded into the most triple plays this year.:D

04-27-2007, 01:28 PM
Sean Casey

04-27-2007, 01:28 PM
Sean Casey?? He seemed like he hit into one every time someone was on base his last few years here.

George Anderson

Frank Robinson

Dante Bichette hit into four in a row.

That's gotta be worth something.

04-27-2007, 01:55 PM
i would say Pete Rose because of his tenure with the reds. If you did per season I think that sean casey would be up there.

04-27-2007, 01:56 PM
I'll go with Tony Perez.

04-27-2007, 01:59 PM
The answer is David Concepcion with 266.

Ernie Lombardi hit into a record 30 in 1938 for the single season record.

Grounded into Double Plays
Rank Player GIDP PA
1. Dave Concepcion 266 9640
2. Johnny Bench 201 8669
3. Tony Perez 181 7630
4. Ernie Lombardi 179 4286
5. Barry Larkin 178 9057
6. Pete Rose 175 12325

8. Frank Robinson 136 6409
9. Sean Casey 131 4478
10. George Foster 128 5010

FWIW I was going to guess Bench.

Ray Knight led the majors in GIDP for one of his seasons with the Reds. That was the reason for my guess.

Now I guess my mental picture of the quintessential Concepcion AB will be of him crossing 1B just after the throw from 2B. :laugh:

Here's the list of all players who had hit into triple plays before this season. Brooks Robinson appears to have the all time record with 4.

Wow Lombardi GIDP every 23 PAs. Casey 2nd at 34.1.

Apparently Ernie couldn't outrun a sack of rocks.

The answer is David Concepcion with 266.

Good thing he turned a lot of them too to make up for it. :)
