It seems we cannot generate a list of walk-off balks (meaning balks that were the last play of the game, allowing the winning run to score) using the Play Index, so I thought I'd beseech you, the readers, to help me generate a list. Perhaps someone has already compiled one?
Please provide links below to box scores for games that ended on a balk or to a list on an outside website that has a full list.
I'll get us started.
There was this 2000 game where John Rocker balked in the winning run.
The Braves were on the winning side of a walk-off balk in this 1993 game.
Just as I was writing this, Raphy mentioned that he thinks Sean might have posted a complete list of walk-off balks on the old B-R blog before the merge with the 'Stat of the Day' blog, but we can't seem to find it. Anyway I'll see if Sean still has it but in the meantime let's see what our readers can find.
