bat flip greatness

There are bat flips and then there are Bat Flips. This is both. This is everything. This is all that a bat flip video needs to be. It is story. A saga of human achievement. The heights of euphoria and the depths of despair.

It is also encoded to prevent embedding. So we shall embark together on a journey. A journey to the very core of our own humanity. We will learn of both the agency of a man as well as his place in his realm.

Hitting a baseball is really hard. Hitting a home run, when your team is down two runs in the ninth and a runner stands on base, is hard and important. Should a baseball player commit such a rare act, it is reason for celebration.

Fear not, men. For I, Jeon Joon-woo, have equalled the score. This is a moment we shall remember for all our days.

This…I..well…but..wait…what?

Did that ball not leap from my bat into the loving embrace of a Lotte Giants devotee? What cruel fate conspired to keep this drive within the confines of the field of play?

SALVATION! Where once we appeared vanquished, now we are one step closer to VICTORY! That brief flirtation with mortality will only make this triumph the more satisfying!

WELP. WARNING TRACK POWER LOL. SEE YOU AT THE CROSSROADS, HOMEY.
