While battling the COVID-19 outbreak, American sports fans have gone without live action for almost two months. Looking for something to watch that doesn’t include a throwback game from X amount of years ago that you don’t care about? No need to fear, because the international wonder that is Korean baseball is here, officially coming to ESPN! Perhaps these bat flips will grab your attention.
While the casual baseball fan may not know much about the KBO, one thing that the league is known for is its players’ infamous bat flips. While hitters in the MLB are frowned upon for pimping home runs, players in the KBO have no shame in bat flipping, no matter how many bases a hitter picks up.
I’m not sure about you guys, but I’m excited to see live action baseball coming back to National television. The Opening Day game will be broadcast on ESPN at 1am Eastern time, with the rest airing at 5:30 am or 4:00 am. Be sure to give the KBO a try, and be on the lookout for more than a few bat flips.
