Satisfactory Essays
Steal in our dictionary means to take any other person's property. However in baseball, it means to run to an additional base without the batter getting a hit and without getting tagged by the ball by an opposing player or run out of the base line When you steal a base you are gaining an extra base in order to score home to count as a run without tagging. However, the pitcher could throw it to the baseman he´s covering and either get him out, or get into a pickle, which usually is resulted in an out, but is sometimes is successful. Another effect of stealing is once the pitcher successful pitches it, the catcher can then throw it to the base your proceeding and get you out by his own player.
