Comments on: 2007 Walk-off plate appearances This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: Raphy Thu, 28 Feb 2008 23:10:35 +0000 Expounding upon KC's comment here:

As you mentioned there were 210 walk-off plate appearances in 2007.
According to this:
there were 215 walk-off wins. That means that 5 were of the balk, wild pitch, passed ball, stolen base variety. Hopefully one day those will be included in the Team Event finders.

They really don't do that when a closer strikes out the side in the 9th. The players in the dugout come out on the field, the outfielders typically jog to the infield, everyone slaps hands for a minute, some guys hang around on the field and talk to the press, etc.

Of the two times he gave up the game-winning at bat (I also hate the term walk-off), what happened? First, with runners on first and third, Jeter hits a grounder to second and the throw to the plate to get Melky Cabrera was late. The other was a sacrifice fly. So what do you call those, "Derek Jeter has just come through with a walk-off fielders choice!!! Yankees win!!! The-eee-eee-eee Yankees win on a walk-off fielders choice!!!"
