A quick perusal show David Ortiz with 17. The only others with that many or more I found were:
Pete Rose - 21
Rickey Henderson - 21
Mike Schmidt - 17
Barry Bonds - 17

Second behind Ortiz for active players I found Miggy Tejada with 14. But to show you how indicative this stat is, Manny Ramirez has 9 - and so does Marco Scutaro.

Do you know who the career leaders are for walk-off winning base hits?

Ethier's total of 11 in less than 3 seasons is insane and very Ortiz-like.

Damn it! I almost made it a while day without mentioning Ortiz on this blog.

Also, I'm curious to know how many opportunities these guys had.11 walk offs are great but if he failed 30 times in the same situation?

You're right, that a game ending hit doesn't guarantee a win, which is why the second filter is necessary.

I wonder if the PI could be "tricked" at all depending on what you tell it. For example, there are ways for a base hit to end a game but still result in a loss for that team. Like if an advancing runner gets thrown out at home or if the batter tries to stretch a single into a double... etc. I have very little experience with PI and all of Ethier's seem to check out.
