Teams that walk-off

Since I have been on the subject of walk-offs (a game where the home team wins in their final at bat), I thought it would be a good idea to see which teams have won and lost the most walk-offs between 1990 and 2007. Tables 1-6 display the major league leaders and Table 7 looks at the Tigers.
