Batting average and stolen bases are both statistical categories. If you get a hit, your total number of hits and your batting average go up. If you steal a base, your total number of stolen bases and your stolen base average go up. They're separate categories, and have no effect on each other.

How do you steal home base?

You steal a base by running for it before the pitcher even pitches, instead of waiting for the batter to hit the ball. If the pitcher sees you, instead of pitching to the batter the pitcher must throw the ball to a team mate who must tag you out before you reach the base safely. You can choose to return to the base you started on, but to steal the base you must arrive safely on home.
