More about Team Caught Stealing Per Game

Team caught stealing per game have been on decline for a number of years.  In 2013 the team with the fewest caught stealing per game had just .12 per game (Detroit and Boston – also the teams who scored the most runs that year), whereas in 2003 the team with the fewest still had .2 per game. 

While the scoring environment in baseball has contributed to the decline, pitchers have become much better at neutralizing a team’s running game, by throwing over to a base repeatedly to keep a runner close and also due to so many pitchers using the slide step and minimizing the amount of time a runner has to advance to the next base.
