Double Dip Dissection
In Episode 1080 of the Effectively Wild podcast, co-host Jeff Sullivan noted that several of the batters who’ve reached base via error three times in a game did so in doubleheaders (1:06:06):
"This seems like something that somebody could research, to see if errors have been more prevalent in doubleheaders. If you adjust for era, there could be something there. I am not nearly interested enough to do the research ... so somebody out there, do the hard work!"
I took up the mantle of somebody, but as you’ll see, it was not I who did the hard work.
