Before the madness of the regular season replaces the madness of the offseason and Spring Training, I wanted to make one more post about my favorite Large Man Who Plays Baseball, Dae-Ho Lee.
About a month ago, I wrote up a story about my experience over the holidays where I inadvertently asked for a bootleg Dae-Ho Lee jersey and received one from my brother-in-law. It's a hoot, go take a look. Here is a lil' excerpt:
Because the offseason was long and dreadful, I started digging through the MLB.TV a bit more and wanted to share some .gifs I made from the day Dae-Ho Lee became an actual legend when he hit a pinch-hit, walk-off home run off the Jake Diekman and ended a rough early-season losing streak for the Mariners in 2016.
As far as I know, Dae-Ho will ride again with the Lotte Giants this season in South Korea. Here is a mammoth shot and hilariously ho-hum bat flip from the 2017 season. Enjoy.
I can only hope to see more of this in 2018. Keep on swinging, Dae-Ho.
