International Bat-Flip Coverage: Korea’s Byung-Hun Min

Min Flip

If there’s one thing for which NotGraphs is known, it’s producing content designed specifically to court hot internet clicks. If there’s a second thing for which it’s known, however — besides that first thing involving hot internet clicks — it’s appealing to readers with the big, broad outlook. “There’s an entire world out there,” the editor of this site has often pronounced at company meetings, gesturing with his arms to the nearest window, so as to emphasize the point. “What our readers demand is that we cover it.”

It’s in fulfillment of that editorial mandate, then, that the author presents the animated GIF embedded here (from a longer video) of Doosan outfielder Byung-Hun Min both homering and then, with what the French may or may not call le grand geste, releasing his bat.

Credit to Dan of My KBO for bringing this footage to the public’s attention.

Will there be a Fangraphs meet in Paris once you move there? That’d be cool…

The indecent bat flip – carelessly this striker cast away that which he used to strike. ‘Tis a grand jest that this photoplay is hailed worldwide just as captures of erogenous celebrity is hungrily devoured, be it unfit to serve. Who doth show restraint among the ordinary base scrabblers will be called majestic by learned men, not the baton twirler.
