After the final run crosses home plate, giving a team in the bottom of the final inning the lead, the game is over and the player can "walk off" the field IF; 1. the batter hits a fair ball, inside the park, he must touch first base, 2. if the batter hits the ball over the fence, he may walk off without touching first base.
