# Stolen Base Percentage (SB%)

### $$SB\%=\frac{STOLEN\ BASES}{(STOLEN\ BASES + CAUGHT\ STEALING)}$$

The number of steals for a player divided by total number of attempts.

As a general rule of thumb, a baserunner with an SB% of 75 or higher is typically productive and helping his team by attempting to steal.
