Perfect example of penny wise pound foolish. Auto intentional walk ...


Although I don't recall the pitcher or situation, I DO remember seeing a wild pitch on an IW that scored a decisive run. I also remember a batter reaching out to hit a ball that was too close.

No matter how many times there's an IW, you hold your breath just a bit when a pitcher lobs the ball towards the catcher. Some pitchers are more uncomfortable than others in issuing 4 balls.

And how much does the auto IW save???... 60 seconds?? Ridiculous!
