I'm not a baseball expert and I don't recall this term being used in the 1960s and 1970s when I followed baseball. I'll take a stab based on how I've heard the term being used. If it was the bottom of the ninth inning or the bottom of an extra inning, the bases were loaded with a tie score and the batter walked (base on balls), I'd say that base on balls was a walk-off walk.Yep, and about the only thing more embarrassing for a pitcher would be a walk-off hit batter.
