Oh is this precious.
Choi Jun-seok of the Korean Baseball Organization’s Doosan Bears thought he had himself a big time jimmy jack after turning on a fastball up and in on Monday. Choi just destroyed the pitch, hammering it down the line. He absolutely pulverized it and knew he got all of the ball as soon as he hit it. In fact, he even gave an epic bat flip. Unfortunately for Choi, the ball went about 100 feet foul down the line, leaving Choi with nothing but a 1-1 count. His team went on to lose 10-3 to the Lotte Giants.
If that awesome video looks familiar, it’s because back in May we had an even better premature celebration from the Korean league.
Below is a GIF in case the video gets pulled.
