If you hit the ball to the outfield and you were told to run and look second base but then you run to second is that a double.

Yes! if ...
by: Coach Dan

Thank you for your question. The simple answer is yes. If there was no stoppage in play, if the outfielder did not bobble or misplay the ball to let you get to second, yes. It does not matter if you stopped to look. As long as you got to second without the outfielder making an error (fielding or throwing), then yes, it is a double. The only exception would be if the ball was hit to the outfield and if there was a runner on second or third who was trying to score and the outfielder threw the ball home to try and to get the runner out and the batter advanced to second on the throw home, then the play is a single and the runner advances on the throw to the plate.
