In Major League Baseball, if a hitter takes too long to admire a home run or flips his bat in celebration, there's a good chance he's going to pay the price. Ain't that right, Bryce Harper?

Makes you wonder what would happen to an MLB player if he finished off a homer the way Korean slugger Park Suk-min did on Wednesday — with a full 360-degree spin after his follow-through (full video here). No matter the future cost to his person, Suk-min looked so smooth. It's like he choreographed this for "So You Think You Can Dance: The Baseball Version."

We can always count on the Korean Baseball Organization for some theatrics. Remember that magnificent first pitch by the Korean gymnast last month? Well, here's a ballerina catching some air right before tossing a first pitch at another KBO game on Wednesday.
