There are a few feelings in sports that you just can’t describe. One of which is perfectly timing a pitch as a hitter. Just to hit a pitch so flush and on point, the point of contact is soft as butter through a warm knife and the trajectory is majestic.
That’s probably how Choi Jun-seok of the Dossan Bears felt for about three seconds during a game against the Lotte Giants as Jun-seok absolutely mashed the incoming pitch. I mean, the thing was crushed. Only problem? It was extremely foul. We’re talking not even close enough to watch as it went down the line, foul.
That didn’t stop Jun-seok from having quite possibly the most arrogant and epic bat flip of all-time though.
After destroying the pitch, Jun-seok raised his arms and launched the bat into orbit, but by the time the wood was out of his hands he was slowly beginning to understand the pitch was going to be foul, no matter how much body language he put on it.
He then, head down, walked over to pick up his bat which was probably still flying towards North Korea.
