On Thursday during the third inning, Royals' Billy Butler hit into a double play.â†µ
It was the 25th time this season that had happened. The Royals record for number of times hitting into a double play is 26 set in 1982.â†µ
Butler is on pace for 35 total this season.â†µ
The MLB record was 36, set by Jim Rice in 1982.â†µ
Butler is certainly part of the future but may be setting MLB records for the wrong reasons.
