Korean baseball player’s hilarious premature celebration includes bat flip, home run point (Video)

This is easily one of my favorite baseball videos in a long time.

According to Deadspin, this took place during a Wednesday game in the Korean Professional Baseball league between the Lotte Giants and NC Dinos. The Dinos were up 6-4 in the ninth when Giants outfielder Jeon Jun-woo came up with one out and a man on.

Jun-woo took a slow, hanging breaking ball and pulverized it to left. Dude totally thinks it’s gone. He does a bat flip, home run point, points to his teammates in the dugout, and begins his home run trot. Only one problem: he had warning track power.

The ball was caught by the left fielder, and a stunned Jun-woo was left stranded by first base wondering what the heck happened.

Let’s break down all the awesomeness of this “Major League II” Willie Mays Hayes real-life moment.

First, there was an epic bat toss by Jun-woo:

Then he gives a, “I got this baby” home run point:

The Dinos bullpen is left with nothing but to laugh:

This might have been the greatest baseball video ever. Carlos Gomez feels Jeon’s pain.
