Intentional Walkoff

The following video is from the independent Atlantic League in 2007 and features an intentional walk gone wrong. Needless to say, pitcher Lance Odom hasn't pitched since this fateful year.

Since the names sound similar, I must clarify that Lance Odom is not to be confused with John Odom, the pitcher that I previously mentioned had died from drugs after getting traded for ten wooden bats. The pitcher in this video is a completely different pitcher.

However, a fun fact: In the linked John Odom entry, I mentioned having two high school classmates who toiled in the minors and never made it. One of them, Russ Cleveland, is the catcher in this video.
