Players that have Stolen Home PlateProbably Hundreds. Baseball Almanac (http://www.baseball-almanac.com/recbooks/rb_stbah.shtml) lists 38 players who have stolen home at least TEN times.

Some highlights:

Paul Molitor (10; the most recent player as far as I can tell)

Babe Ruth (10; the most surprising member)

Jackie Robinson (19; everyone remembers this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XY-XshGhMU but JR did it 18 other times)

Max Carrey (33; Number 2 all-time)

Ty Cobb (54; the undisputed home-stealing champ)

It used to be much more common than it is today, since the game used to be more speed and less power-oriented.

Some recent players to do it include Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alwm_JHAURQ&NR=1).

"Steals of home" isn't an official stat and is ambiguous. Typically people mean a "pure" steal of home like what you see in the Robinson or Ellsbury vids, but people might also include "impure" steals (e.g. the second half of a double steal or a steal when another runner is caught in a rundown.) So far as I can tell the BA list includes only pure steals, but I could be mistaken.
