The Yankees wound up with walk-off wins in 26% of their home wins. Of my five wins, two were of the walk-off variety, which means I saw walk-offs in 40% of the victories I attended.
Given that the Yankees finished the season going 57-24 at home, it's pretty crazy that I attended more than 20% of those losses -- one of which was a rare extra-inning loss on May 6 to the Rays, another a tie game in which Mariano Rivera gave up the lead in the 9th inning a day later and last night's game in which the potential tying and winning runs were in scoring position. Crazy to think that the Yankees could have had three more walk-off wins this year.
