What is Stolen Bases - SB?

Sporting Charts explains Stolen Bases - SB

The strategy behind a Stolen Base (SB) is to advance a runner to a position from which he is more likely to score a run. A player can steal second base, third base or home, depending on his starting position and the game situation. In order to put out a runner when he is attempting to steal, the defensive team must tag the runner as he is leading off and feinting towards the next base or during the course of the attempted steal.
