Korean baseball sports the world’s greatest bat flips

June 1, 2015

In the U.S., flipping a bat after a home run is seen as an act of disrespect towards pitchers and even the game as a whole.

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig vowed to cut down on his plate theatrics in April after being criticized.

“I don’t [bat flip] because I lack respect,” Puig told the Los Angeles Times. “I do that because of the emotions that I have. I want to show American baseball that I’m not disrespecting the game.”

In South Korea, it’s the exact opposite.

The bat flip is an act of pride and provides entertainment for fans so it happens all the time.

Lotte Giant’s infielder Jung Hoon displayed a perfect example of that after a two-run shot on Thursday as seen above.

In fact, the bat flip is so widely accepted in the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) that players will do it even for a hard hit ball that is clearly heading towards foul territory.
