The 2009 Walk-Off Wins: All 15 Of Them

I heard a broadcaster say that the actual phrase "walk-off win" is attributed to Dennis Eckersley. Eckersley called the pitch he threw to Kirk Gibson, which led to that famous homerun, his walk-off pitch. He called it that because, he said, "After I throw it, I walk off the field."

There were 15 of those pitches thrown at the new Yankee Stadium during the regular season this year. See all 15 of them in this great YouTube video:
