Video: What a pitch – Korean taekwondoist shows athletic skills on baseball field

We don’t know if it would ever catch on in the States, but in Korea they like to add a bit of flair to their baseball. Some incredibly athletic flair.

Yesterday the Doosan Bears were in action in the Korean Baseball Organisation when they called in an actress and martial artist for the ceremonial first pitch, and she did not disappoint.

As Tae Mi went into her windup, she wowed the crowd by pulling off a remarkable flip with several rotations, but most impressively, kept her footing on landing and then followed through with what could be a slider or a tailing fastball.

Top-notch stuff.
