Appreciate the sheer audacity of this ridiculous KBO bat flip

KBO player goes yard, flips his bat into oblivion

In this bleak post-Puig-bat-flips society, America still needs to sate its desire for spinning, celebratory lumber, and the KBO's Doosan Bears have solemnly answered the call.

Earlier in the week came this gem from Kim Jin-Hyung, a finesse flip full of balance and grace. Fellow Bear Min Byung-Heon, however, doesn't care about such niceties. He has no use for his puny bat:

If a radar gun had gotten that exit velocity, it probably would've broken most highway speed limits. There's no posturing, just a simple flick and a stare down. 

A grateful nation sends its thanks, Bears. You continue to lift our spirits during these tough times.
