To get a double play, you must get 2 outs while the ball is in play. The easiest way to do this is start with a player on first base. Once the next batter comes up, keep throwing pitches towards the bottom of the strike zone. This makes it more likely that there will be a ground ball. Since the player on first must run to second base, you can throw the ball to second to get him out and then throw the ball to first to get the batter out.

This always works with players on first and second, and first, second, and third (but it's always much less stressful with only one person on base).

If you want to make this achievement easier, set the baserunning speed for the CPU down to 0 in the Settings. This will make the players run slowly enough to allow you time to throw the ball around the plates, pretty much guaranteeing a double play.
