Watch this KBO player dramatically salute his game-tying home run

KBO player takes dramatic pause before epic bat flip

When you hit a game-tying homer, you ought to celebrate. But how you celebrate is really up to you. We've seen some pretty phenomenal bat flips, but sometimes, less is more.

Sure, he eventually flipped it, but he made us wait for it like Lawrence Olivier drawing out the last lines of Hamlet's "To be or not to be" speech. This is a guy who knows the value of a dramatic pause.
