Epic bat flip fail

Choi Jun-seok of the Korean Baseball Organization may not be a household name. But a move the Doosan Bears slugger pulled against the Lotte Giants in game Monday night may change that. On a 1-0 count in the bottom of the eighth inning (with his team trailing 10-3), Jun-seok ripped a ball down the right field line that seemed foul immediately. But someone forgot to tell Jun-seok that. As soon as he made contact, the hitter flipped his bat nearly halfway to the third-base dugout. The ball ended up going somewhere between 50-75 feet foul. Did we mention Jun-seok's team was down by seven runs? The humbled batter later struck out swinging. Evidently, the premature bat flip is a "thing" in the KBO.
