More about Team Stolen Base Percentage

After declining in the late 1990s and early 2000s the number of stolen base attempts (but not necessarily stolen base percentage) has gone up again in recent years.  A general rule of thumb is that a team (or a player) must be successful in at least 70% of their stolen base attempts to gain some overall value on the basepaths.  The reason for this is that a team is hurt by a single caught stealing more than they are helped by a single successful stolen base.
