Caught Stealing - Wild Pitch/Passed Ball

Wild Pitch/Passed Ball

If a runner is making no attempt to advance to the next base until there is a wild pitch or passed ball, and is then put out trying to advance to the next base, this runner is not caught stealing. The runner is put out on a fielder's choice, and a wild pitch/passed ball would not be charged to the pitcher or catcher.

Famous quotes containing the words wild, pitch, passed and/or ball:

    There was so much of the Indian accent resounding through his English, so much of the “bow-arrow tang” as my neighbor calls it.... It was a wild and refreshing sound, like that of the wind among the pines, or the booming of the surf on the shore.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I saw the Arab map.
    It resembled a mare shuffling on,
    dragging its history like saddlebags,
    nearing its tomb and the pitch of hell.
    Adonis [Ali Ahmed Said] (b. 1930)

    The hand I burned and whose skin is shriveled like that of a mummy’s is less sensitive than the other to cold or heat. My soul is the same; it passed through fire.
    Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880)

    Blackberries
    Big as the ball of my thumb, and dumb as eyes
    Ebon in the hedges, fat
    With blue-red juices. These they squander on my fingers.
    I had not asked for such a blood sisterhood; they must love me.
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)
