GIF: The Korean mound celebration is ... different
The Korean Series recently wrapped up, and celebratory differences were on display.
In Korea, the Samsung Lions on Thursday topped the Doosan Bears by a tally 7-3 in Game 7 of the Korean Series. They are now champions of the Korean Baseball Organization for a third straight season.
As for the mound celebration, it was a far more patient, organized and inclusive hootenanny than what stateside fans are accustomed to seeing. Please do witness glorious triumph:
For some historical perspective on the Lions' victory, there's this from MyKBO:

Congrats, Lions. And by all means please do continue celebrating in that precise manner.
