One of the coolest first pitches you’ll ever see, thanks to a Korean gymnast

Holy hip replacement! Get a load of this first pitch thrown out at a Korean Baseball Organization game Friday. This amazing woman is Shin Soo-ji, a rhythmic gymnast, who did the first-pitch honors for the Doosan Bears before their game with the Samsung Lions. (Thanks to our pal Dan at MyKBO for the ID.)

I can't tell you what the announcers are saying, but I know this needs no translation: This video is crazy awesome. You'll probably watch it 15 times in a row.

Memo to Tiffany Hwang, the Korean pop star, who threw out that horrible first pitch at a Los Angeles Dodgers game earlier this season: This is how you do it. In fact, this puts pretty much every MLB first pitch I've ever seen to shame. Even you, Colin Kaepernick.

I'm almost — ALMOST — willing to forgive Korea now for unleashing "Gangnam Style" on the rest of the world.
