It's the bottom of the ninth (or in extras!). Your team is either tied or (gulp) behind. And your favorite player is at the plate with a chance to secure that all important W.
Butts: on the edges of seats.
The amount of marbles that this is for: all of them.
Here comes the pitch and... he does the thing! Your team has won! Players are throwing dirt and Gatorade and bubblegum and garbage at each other! Shaving cream pies take flight and find their unsuspecting but smiling targets. Everything is the best!
This is why we love baseball.
Walk offs are amazing. Each and every one. Granted, a grand slam when your team is down by three runs is probably a bit more dramatic than an overthrow allowing the go-ahead run to score, but a win is a win and a walk off is a walk off. Over the last decade, the Mariners have been the beneficiaries of 58 walk-off victories. 30 different gentlemen have contributed these walk-off dingers/bloops/sac flies/ROE. Can you name all of them? Good luck!
