You might remember back in July we brought you the tale of Hwang Jae-gyun and his tremendous bat flip. It’s right there, at the top. Note his sense of dramatic timing, his coiled, arching, yet nonchalant flip. This here is a man who knows how to flip a bat.
For Hwang Jae-gyun’s 21st home run, he held his bat out for a good four seconds before finally flipping it and trotting the bases. The Lotte Giants third baseman made sure the ball was fair so as to not squander such an excellent bat flip.

How's your bat-flip game, Yasiel Puig? Good, good, glad to see that you are still flippin' bats. But here's the thing: you don't have shit on these Korean ballplayers.
