The Ole Ball Game

can a walk off homer be more than one run?

(Morro Bay, CA)

Dave asked: Bottom of the ninth,score tied, two men on and the batter hits a home run.

Is it scored as just one run or three runs?

Rick answered: Dave, thank you for your question.

If an over the fence home run is hit, all runs score before the game is terminated.

With a walk off base hit, the game is terminated when the batter-runner touches first base safely, and the winning run has crossed the plate.

Yours in baseball,
