Baseball Reference actually has some pretty interesting
stats on this. Scroll down to the advanced fielding section and check out the "held" stat.
Granted, the stat doesn't seem to take into account, say, how deep the fly ball was or how fast the runner was, but I thought it still made for interesting reading.
