Around-the-horn

Definition

"Around-the-horn" describes a ground-ball double or triple play that starts with the third baseman and involves a throw to second followed by a throw to first.

"Around-the-horn" can also be used to describe when the infielders throw the ball to one another following an out with no men on base. After a strikeout with nobody on base, the catcher typically starts the "around-the-horn" exercise by throwing the ball to the third baseman.

Example

Watch: The Yankees go around the horn to turn a 5-4-3 triple play .
