Walkoff Wednesday by the Numbers & Deeds

It’s been a lot of fun looking back at the walkoff heroics of various Timber Rattlers players through the years.  Yeah, I guess it’s been fun to look back at the opposing team’s wins in that same fashion.  That’s what Walkoff Wednesday has been about.

Now is the time to break things down by team and by walkoff event from 1995-2012. 

Additionally, I will list the walkoff homers both for the Timber Rattlers and against the Timber Rattlers.
