A Baseball Question

You can also have walk off base hits.

Basically, the long and short of it is meaning once that game winning play ends (base hit, home run, suicide squeeze, whatever...) you can WALK-OFF the field. Hense it can only happen in the bottom of the ninth of any game.

And no there are not "Walk off Strike outs" or "Walk off double play"...it only pertains to offense.

I don't know why, but like everyone said, its just a fancy term. I think MLB keeps track of Game winning _____ but not Walk off _______.

you can thank Dennis Eckersley for giving up the famed Kirk Gibson homer, after which he coined the "walkoff" term. After that it really caught on, so now it's as common as talkin about batting average
