A walk off is when the home team scores the winning run in the bottom of the final inning, and the hitter and any baserunners get to walk off the field with the victory. Most games end when a team that holds the lead records the final out. Somehow when the defense walks off the field as the winners, it is not considered walking off.

I'm answering this as a baseball fan of over 40 years ... No team is to be credited with being first as far as walk off homeruns. All through baseball history games have occasionally been won with a last-at-bat home run, but the term "walk off" came into use after Kirk Gibson's amazing 9th inning home run in the first game of the 1988 World Series between the Dodgers and the Oakland A's. The common understanding of "walk off" is where a batter on the home team hits a home run in their final at-bat that wins them the game. It implies that a batter, after hitting the home run, can almost casually walk around the bases to lengthen the celebration and then walk off the field. However, I have heard that originally the "walk off" term was coined by a pitcher, who the moment after giving up a no-doubt, game-ending homer, simply walked off the field without even turning his head to watch the flight of the ball over the fence.
