Home runs electrify the crowd and give hitters the opportunity to take a victory lap around the bases while the fans rejoice in the glorious moment.
But what happens when a brave hitter struggles to make it around the bases and ends up turning a heroic baseball moment into pure comedy? The video below happens.
Enjoy watching former MLB player and current LG Twins (Korean Baseball Organization) star Luis Jimenez smack a two-run shot over the left field wall, then face plant like a Chris Farley character as he rounds third base. Jimenez spent part of last season with the Milwaukee Brewers and the Boston Red Sox, but it looks like he is becoming a fan favorite in Korea.
Jimenez took the spill in stride and laughed off the embarrassing blooper.
