No. In a standard ground out double play, where all outs are force outs, no runs can score on the play.

technically, no, that's why it is called a dead ball, all runners go back to the bag they were at before the play started. unless it is a ground rule double, however, then the runner gets two bases from where he started when the play began. so if the player began on second, he can score.

### What does closed bases mean in youth baseball?

Not only in youth baseball but in all levels of baseball, a closed base means that the next base that a base runner needs to get to has a runner already on the bag. E.G.: There's a runner on first and second, so a ground ball will force a throw from second base to first base considering that those bases are "closed" with base runners. In a bases loaded situation, all bases are "closed" because all bases have a base runner and the batter is considered on home plate.

### If the bases are loaded with one out and the batter hits a ground ball - which hits his runner who is going from 1st to 2nd - does the runner on third advance to score?

I would say the runner is called out (would be Out #2) and the runner on third could advance to score. However, if there were two outs, the runner would be called out (Out #3) and therefore, the runner on 3rd would not be able to score (unless of course he crossed home plate before the runner got hit by the ground ball, then it would count)
