Stolen Base Question


Stolen Base Question

I thought that if a player shows a "N/A" for Allow to Steal Bases he will never steal. I have a player that shows 4 stolen bases even though he is an N/A for Allow to Steal. He is rated 3 for Speed which is below the Medium Runner threshold. Is this expected behavior regarding base stealing?

Thanks

Re: Stolen Base Question

Two possibilities - 1) if a team plays a non-catcher at catcher, I believe that every base runner no matter how slow, is able to basically steal without any chance of being caught. 2) if a faster runner steals 3rd base when your slower guy is on 1st, he’ll go to second on the play and get credited with a stolen base as well.

Re: Re: Stolen Base Question

Even though when a non catcher catches every player can steal, its not an automatic, guys can get thrown out by a non catcher, but the probability of getting caught is pretty darn low.

and yes if they are on 1st and a man steals 3rd then they can get a Steal on the back end.

Re: Stolen Base Question

You guys nailed it. The opposing team had a non catcher behind the plate. My team stole 8 bases that game. Thank you for the help. I appreciate it.
