English term or phrase: Stealing home
I am translating a series of math exercises and one of the problems is introduced by the phrase: "Stealing home", and followed by the question:

"How many runs will Jackie Robinson likely score in the 1948 season? Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g. 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole when given a part and the percent."

I assume the title is in reference to Jackie Robinson's movie. I have not seen the movie and do not know much about baseball either, therefore I cannot think of a way of adapting this in order to produce a title in Spanish that introduces the problem. Any ideas? Thank you!!
