Batter celebrates home run, only it wasn’t a home run

When is a home run not really a home run?

When it’s caught by an outfielder.

Such was the case for Jeon Jun-woo of the Korean League’s Lotte Giants, who fell to the NC Dinos by a score of 6-4 last week. That alone isn’t too funny or even Haboob worthy, but the fact that the player thought he hit a game-tying home run in the bottom of the ninth inning was.

Jun-woo was so confident the ball was leaving the yard that he started celebrating, only to see it land in the left fielder’s glove.

It was very Willie Mays Hayes-esque, and because we’re cool like this, below is a clip from Major League II.
