LOOK: Jae-Gyun Hwang unleashes mother of all bat flips after HR

Thursday night at Masan Baseball Stadium in South Korea, the NC Dinos beat the Lotte Giants by the score of 3-2. NC had a 2-1 lead in the top of the ninth when Giants third baseman Jae-Gyun Hwang clubbed a game-tying solo home run.

The game-tying homer was huge, no doubt about it, and Hwang made sure he took his time to admire it. Watch this bat flip (skip to 0:47 if you're impatient):

Here is the obligatory GIF:

Now that is how you admire a home run. Unfortunately for Lotte and Hwang, the Dinos (the Dinos!) walked off with the win the bottom half of the ninth. A good bat flip goes wasted.
