Melvin Mora, 2007 Bowman Heritage Rainbow #113

You know, I've always said that if you're going to have a fifty-game home run drought, the only way to end it is by blasting a walk-off shot in the twelfth inning and sliding into a mob of jubilant teammates at home plate.
Okay, I've never said that. But it's a mighty fine reward for sweating through nearly four hours of back-and-forth baseball action. Thanks for the game winner, MelMo. With any luck, you'll be gearing up for another red-hot second half.

Melvin totally stole Luke Scott's walk-off move, and lost style points for not going with the bowling motion with his helmet towards home.

Aaron - Point taken. I think the next Oriole to hit a walk off HR has to up the ante and go in head-first. Of course, that's probably a suicide mission.
