Major Fail: Korean Baseball Player Hwang Jae-Gyun Gives Us the Worst Slide Ever (Video)
I’ve got to hand it to the Korean Baseball Championship. They’ve given us some pretty fantastic posts over the last few summers—from the premature celebration guy (and the other premature celebration guy), to the drunk dude who attacked the umpire, to the guy who evaded a tag at the plate like a boss.
