Korean Batter Crushes Ball, Flips Bat, Things Don’t Work Out

“Talk about your all-time backfires.”

A brief diversion from the local sports scene. Can’t claim to know much about the situation, so here’s a short intro via Deadspin:

The Korean league’s Lotte Giants fell 6-4 to the last-place NC Dinos today, capped off by an embarrassing at-bat for outfielder Jeon Jun-woo. In the ninth inning, with the tying run on, Jeon got ahold of one and was sure he had tied up the game.

Working video via MyKBO:

Hard not to feel for Jun-woo. Love the guys in the opposing dugout, though. Love em.

    Video didn’t work in the article, but I went and found it on Youtube……that is hilarious and the opposing dugout is the best part.
