Korean Angers Baseball Gods, Home Run Trot Ends in Humiliating Fashion
You might want to make sure you clear the fence before celebrating a home run.
Deadspin spotted what has to be the most delightful video of a player getting shamed since Willie Mays Hayes pointed to the fence in Major League II.
Much like that ill-fated boast, this one ends in shame for the slugger.
According to its report, this comes during Wednesday's game between Korean league's Lotte Giants and the last-place NC Dinos.
Giants outfielder Jeon Jun-woo comes to bat in the ninth inning with his team down two and a runner on first base. The stage is set for some major heroics, if not some rather unfortunate hysterics.
With one out, Jun-woo blasts the ball to left field and firmly believes it is gone. I have never met this man, but I am willing to bet he has never believed anything more fervently than this ball was going to clear the fence.
If you are looking for a side-by-side comparison between this humbling moment in reality and the one cooked up by Hollywood, YouTube user Mykbonet helps you out.
Some of you have tripped and fallen in a public place or messed up a toast with friends. Hell, you may have really embarrassed yourself moments before reading this.
Take a deep breath and give thanks that you never thought to show up a pitcher, only to get laughed at by the opposing team.
Somewhere, a distraught Korean home run hero is proclaiming to anyone who will listen, "It had to be the wind."
