Michael Young, record setter?

Michael Young just grounded into his 17th double play of the season.

He's on pace for 34 GIDPs for the season, and it looks like he could possibly break the record for the most GIDPs in a single season, currently held by Jim Rice with 36.

Jim Rice also has the second most -- 35 -- while Ben Grieve, Jackie Jensen and Cal Ripken, Jr., all are tied for the most GIDPs in a season by someone other than Jim Rice, with 32.

Update [2006-6-30 22:14:23 by Adam J. Morris]: -- Make that 18 GIDPs. Young is now on pace to tie the all-time single season record for GIDPs.
