Intentional Walks - IBB Leaders: 2015 MLB Season

Intentional Walks occur when a pitcher grants a batter a walk to first base by throwing four balls - the idea behind an intentional walk is to remove the ability for a hitter to make a swing on the ball and eliminate the risk from a hit. Intentional Walks are most often given to powerful hitters in dangerous situations.

Also referred to as "Intentional Base on Balls" and scoreds as "IBB."
