An umpire is not supposed to throw the ball back to the pitcher with runners on base. If he does the ball is dead from the time he touches it to the time the pitcher has the ball on the pitching mound. So the runners cannot advance.

What is pitching from the stretch?

Pitching from the stretch occurs when there are runners on base. When there are no runners on base the pitcher will use a full windup to throw the ball. In other words, once the pitcher starts the windup he does not stop before throwing the ball. But when there are runners on base, the pitcher will start a windup and then stop and look at the baserunners in an attempt to keep them close to the base before he throws. When the pitcher stops to look at the runners, this is called the stretch position.

How fast does a catcher throw a ball?

Generally speaking a catcher throws back to the pitcher, each pitch he catches. This throw however, is a direct, straight one, but has a velocity 75 miles per hour or less. The catcher's most throws travel a short distance to the pitcher who stands 50 feet 7 inches away ( generally ) However, often times a catcher is involved in a "live" throw which is thrown to stop a base-runner from stealing base, or the catcher is throwing the ball to one of his fellow players in an ongoing play that requires him to throw with accuracy and good speed. In such situations, the catcher may throw a baseball anywhere between 75 to 85 miles per hour.
