Jonder Martinez pitched with toothpick in mouth, became Premier 12 tournament's Dirty Harry
Jonder Martinez tosses Premier 12 game with toothpick
The 2015 WBSC Premier 12 tournament has already brought us the magnificence of Japan's Shohei Ohtani's pitching and the sheer beauty of Chinese Tapei's Po-Jung Wang's bat flips. But it's not done giving us gifts.
South Korea may have won Monday's matchup against Cuba (7-2), thanks in part to a solo homer from Korea's Eui-ji Yang, but the real winner is the pitcher who gave it up. Here's righty Jonder Martinez pitching with a toothpick in his mouth, like he's Clint Eastwood tracking down a dangerous outlaw:

We're pretty sure this is his inner monologue before every pitch:
OK, obviously Yang did and was, but Martinez still looked super cool.
