Stolen Bases Allowed is a statistic in baseball which details the total number of bases that runners were able to steal while a pitcher was on the mound.
More about Stolen Bases Allowed Leaders
Pitching stolen bases allowed leaders allow the most stolen bases of second base, third base, or (in rare instances) home plate. Because the majority of stolen bases are of second base, and because it is easier for left-handed pitchers to keep runners close than it is for right-handed pitchers, right-handed pitchers will almost always be among the league leaders in stolen bases allowed. Pitchers are not the only ones who have control whether a stolen base attempt is successful against them, as having a catcher with a quick release as well as a strong and accurate throwing arm can also drastically cut down on the number of stolen bases allowed for a pitcher.
