Q. My son is pretty
quick, and his little league coach has been encouraging him to steal
bases. I'm worried that this is improper behavior. A player deserves to
advance if he earns it through a hit, or if the defense forfeits a base
through an error. But is it really ethical to steal a base? We always
try to discourage our children from stealing. TC
