A term often used in baseball and softball to describe a play where two outs are recorded.
The term is commonly seen and heard when a grounder or line drive is fielded by an infielder, who throws it to a teammate standing on a base (or touches the base himself) for a force out, who then relays the throw to another teammate standing on a base for the second force out. There are a variety of double plays that can happen in baseball, such as when a hitter strikes out and a runner is caught stealing or when a player is thrown out trying to advance to the next base after the fielder catches the ball.
