This CPBL umpire has the wildest windmill strikeout motion
There aren't too many types of umpire motions: There's the grunt, the point and the exaggerated punchout. And, other than Leslie Nielson in "The Naked Gun," ... that's about it.
Fortunately, there are a few true umpire artists out there, like this one in the CPBL. He lulls you into the action, simply pointing to mark the third strike. But then, like Pete Townshend, he windmills his arm over the head for the punchout. Honestly, it's so fast that at first you think you dreamed it:
Came across this great umpire strikeout call while doing research on Taiwanese high school baseball. Oh the pitcher's name is 古林睿煬 (Ku-Lin Jui-Yang), 17-yr-old, 184cm, 81kg, fastball around 146kph. #UmpGifs #TWHSBaseball pic.twitter.com/fgEUorQfTq— CPBL STATS (@GOCPBL) May 9, 2018
This for all the post-modern umps out there, making art behind home plate.
