- (baseball, softball) A play where a runner on any base runs to the next base, usually while the pitcher pitches to a batter. Such a runner is liable to be put out if tagged with the ball while not in contact with any base.
- The catcher caught the wild pitch and threw the ball to second, just in time, preventing another stolen base.
- caught stealing, when a runner is is unsuccessful and is thrown out
- defensive indifference, when the runner is not credited with a stolen base because the team playing the field did not try to stop the steal
