    Default Sorting list code

    My code is bellow and I have attached the text file to run on it but I need it to sort the numbers from highest to lowest


    package baseball;

    import java.io.File;
    import java.io.FileNotFoundException;
    import java.util.Scanner;
    import java.util.Arrays;
    import java.util.Collections;

    public class baseball {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws FileNotFoundException
    String firstName = "";
    String lastName = "";
    int hits = 0;
    int walks = 0;
    int caughtStealing = 0;
    int stolenBases = 0;
    int atBats = 0;
    int totalBases = 0;
    double runsCreated = 0.0;
    double[] runsCreatedList = new double [40];
    double[] sortList = new double [40];
    String[] nameList = new String[40];

    Scanner console = new Scanner(System.in);

    //Asks user for input file name
    //If the file is stored on your desktop it will be something like:
    // C:\Users\Nick\baseballinput.txt
    System.out.println("Input File Name: ");
    String inputFileName = console.next();

    //inputFile will take input from stored input file
    File inputFile = new File(inputFileName);

    //in will take input from user defined source
    Scanner in = new Scanner(inputFile);

    for (int i= 0 ; i<= 39; i++)
    lastName = in.next();
    firstName = in.next();
    hits = in.nextInt();
    walks = in.nextInt();
    caughtStealing = in.nextInt();
    stolenBases = in.nextInt();
    atBats = in.nextInt();
    totalBases = in.nextInt();
    runsCreated = ((double)(hits + walks - caughtStealing ) * (totalBases + (.55 * stolenBases ))/(double)(atBats + walks ));

    runsCreatedList[i] = runsCreated;
    sortList[i] = runsCreated;
    nameList[i] = firstName +" "+lastName;

    //sort list here

    for(int j = 0; j <= 39; j++)
    for(int m = 0; m <= 39; m++)

    if(runsCreatedList[m] == sortList[j])
    System.out.print(nameList[m] + ": "+ runsCreatedList[m] + "\n");
