FanPost Friday: Walk-off, strikeout, or lay out?

What is your dream game-winning scenario?

Even though there haven’t been a ton of walk-off moments this postseason, watching the playoffs always gets me thinking about some of the most dramatic endings to major baseball games. Most of us who played little league baseball or softball as kids (or even just backyard/neighborhood games) probably spent a decent amount of time wandering the outfield during slow at-bats, imagining the amazing diving catches we’d make some day with the World Series on the line.

So I wanted to put the question the venerable LL community for this FanPost Friday:

If you were a baseball player, what is your dream scenario for winning a series-clinching game?
