Has anyone in the history of baseball ever stolen home on a non passed ball by the catcher?

Most often it occured in the old days of baseball. Baseball almanac has the info:

It's true it happened more often in the old days, but you still see it occasionally, mostly when there's a left-hander on the mound. I saw it happen at Fenway Park about seven years ago. And of course Brad Ausmus did it in the 2002 World Series.

If the ball gets passed the catcher on a (passed) drooped 3rd strike it is scored as a strike out ... If the catcher throws the ball to 1st before the batter gets there it is scored as a strike out and or a 2 to 3 put out ...More then likely a passed ball will be scored an Error then another way ...

A passed ball is given to the catcher if he misses a pitch or fails to keep it from getting away from him. When the pitcher is at fault, it is called a wild pitch.

They each have an important purpose, but catcher is more important in the levels in which you can steal bases. This applies since the catcher prevents passed balls, as a runner can steal easily on passed balls.

Are you perhaps referring to a "passed ball"? If a pitch gets past the catcher allowing a runner to advance one or more bases then the official scorekeeper has to make a decision. If he/she rules that the catcher should have been able to catch or stop the pitch but did not then the ruling is that the error was made by the catcher and it is a "passed ball". If the scorekeeper rules that the fault lies instead with the pitcher then it is ruled a "wild pitch".
