That's right. The ball bounced off the head of the Lotte Giants' Shin Bon-gi before falling into Jeon Jun-woo's eagerly awaiting glove.
But the best part isn't just the play, but all the reactions. Bon-gi dramatically crumples to the ground while Jun-woo holds up his glove like a kid that has just found the last hidden easter egg. And then there's the Hanwha Eagles' Jared Hoying, who thought he had lucked his way into one heck of an extra-base hit, and instead now must react like he threw his back out picking up the remote.
This is baseball at its best and most gloriously weird. There is joy, there is sadness and there is something you will never see again.
