(not to be confused with Park Jong-Yoon's almost homerun earlier in the same game)

It looks like I missed something in last night's Lotte-NC game. I suppose this is inevitable when you're trying to watch four games at the same time, but it's not often that I wake up the next morning to find that half of America is talking about a play that I didn't see.

In the bottom of the 9th of Lotte's loss to NC in Busan last night, Lotte centerfielder Jeon Jun-Woo came to the plate with a chance to tie the game. He hit one deep to left, arrogantly flipped his bat, pointed at the dugout, and started trotting towards first base confident that he had just hit the game-tying homerun... but he didn't. The ball was caught by NC left fielder Park Jeong-Jun at the warning track. You'll need to see this for yourselves.
