With base runners, comes an opportunity for a double play. In the contest on April 30, 2009, the Royals turned six of them. That's right. Six double plays in one game.

Count 'em. Six double plays. That remains an American League record. The Royals were the 12th team in AL history to turn six in a nine inning game. Here's the great thing. The Royals themselves hit into six double plays the previous week in Cleveland. Somehow, that just seems such a Royals thing to do.
