Meanwhile in Korea: Pitcher’s funny reaction when ump and catcher throw him a ball at the same time

While the American baseball scene is consumed lately by gaffes and rule-breaking from MLB umpires, here's a funny miscommunication between an ump and catcher in the Korean Baseball Organization.

The result? They both throw balls back to the pitcher, and he reacts hilariously. For a second there, it looked like the pitcher — Im Jun-seop of the KIA Tigers — might get lucky and catch them both. But he ends up with neither, and instead gets this funny video to watch over and over and over again.

Thanks to our friend Dan at for sending this our way. Let it serve as a reminder that not everything in baseball has to be so contentious. Wacky is good too.

Baseball is back. Don't miss anything.
