LIttle League Baseball: Batter hits solid double but is thrown out trying to stretch it for a triple

Anonymous asked: Howdy:

Question on how to properly log the following situation: Little League Batter (Age 10) hits a solid double. He safely reaches 2nd and decides to try to advance to third. He is thrown out at third.
Is this scored as:
A hit (double) and Caught Stealing into third?
or
simply as an out; Center Field throws to third base (8-5)?

What is the correct way to score this situation?
Thanks in advance for the guidance!

Rick answered: Thank you for your question!

In your situation, the batter/runner is credited with a double. Record the 8-5 as an out, record the out as 1,2 or 3, whichever it is, and circle the number.

Yours in baseball,

Rick

Thanks for clearing that up and now that we live in the number’s era, what stats are affected in the situation of getting caught at third trying to stretch a double?
