Is it a stolen base on a wild pitch?

A stolen base occurs when a baserunner advances by taking a base to which he isn't entitled. For example, if a runner takes an extra base on a wild pitch or a passed ball, he is not awarded a stolen base. However, if he was attempting to steal as a wild pitch/passed ball was thrown, he is generally given credit for it.

Can you steal first base?

"Batters may 'steal' first base on any pitch not caught in flight (the batter can be thrown out if he attempts to run)." Put simply, if there is a wild pitch or passed ball with no runners on base, the batter is allowed to just go for it. He can steal first!
