International Bat-Flip Coverage: Korea’s Ho-Joon Lee

KBO Bat Flip

Among the (certainly) many traits which the animated GIF embedded here — of NC Dinos’ designated hitter Ho-Joon Lee first releasing his bat with a great flourish and then, as extended coverage reveals, flying out to right field — among the many traits it shares with a West Coast party, certainly one of those is that neither appears likely to stop at any point in the near future.

For further similarities, please consult the author’s scholarly paper on the matter in the forthcoming edition of Archiv für Begriffsgeschichte.

Credit to concerned internet citizen Josh Augustine for bringing this to the editoriat’s attention.

    I really, really wish the outfielder had somehow contrived to flip his glove after the catch. That’d show him.
