List of Major League Baseball Career Doubles Leaders
Tris Speaker is the all-time leader in doubles, with 792.

In baseball, a double is a hit in which the batter advances to second base in one play, with neither the benefit of a fielding error nor another runner being put out on a fielder's choice.[1] A batter may also be credited with a ground-rule double when a fair ball, after touching the ground, bounds into the stands or becomes lodged in a fence or scoreboard.[2]

Hall of Fame center fielder Tris Speaker[3][4][5] holds the Major League Baseball career doubles record with 792.[6] Pete Rose[7] is second with 746, the National League record.[8] Speaker, Rose, Stan Musial[9] (725), and Ty Cobb[10] (724) are the only players with more than 700 doubles.[6] Albert Pujols[11] is the active leader and has the most career doubles by a right-handed hitter with 671. Only doubles hit during the regular season are included in the totals (Derek Jeter[12] holds the record in post-season doubles, with 32).[13]
