Having lived in Korea for the past few years, I am fully aware of the huge world smash by the Korean star Psy in Gangnam Style. I even enjoy going to the Gangnam area in Seoul with its nice restaurants and shopping. However, I’ve also been beaten over the head with that song for too long now. Everywhere you go it is played here.
But now I’m a fan once again after this hilarious video by former MLB Cave Dweller Ricky Mast (easily the best photo in the montage is the one of the old Fred McGriff TV commercial).
I came across a Tweet by Mark Bowman, Braves beat writer, and I was hooked on the video by Mast. I guess it helps that I am a huge Atlanta Braves fan as well. Check it out here and let me know what you think Braves fan or not.
You can follow Ricky Mast on Twitter at @RickyMast and Mark Bowman @MLBBowman. Both are worth a follow.
This weeks video was sent to me from friend and reader Leon Ho. This is an inspirational video of a young boy who plays baseball with only one leg. Not only that, but he plays the most demanding position on the field. If watching this doesn’t inspire you to do more, I don’t know what will.
Thank you Adam Bender for being an inspiration to all of us.
I’ve never been a fan of the Seattle Mariners, but I’ve always loved their commercials. Each year they come out with some funny stuff. This year my favorite so far has Brendan Ryan and Ichiro. Check it out.
This week’s video is a music video coming from The Isotopes. They are a baseball punk rock group that did a great song and video on the former defensive wizard of the New York Mets, Rey Ordonez. The video highlights some amazing plays that Ordonez had through his career. Enjoy…
This weeks video of the week comes to us again from Germany. During the finals of the German Baseball League Playoffs, Ryan Hall of the Paderborn Untouchables hits a low line drive to center field only to see Max Kepler of Regensburg.
Some nice camera work allows the play to be slowed down to show just how nice a grab this was. Check it out..
This is a ridiculous play at the plate. This took place in 2006 in a college game with Montclair State taking on Rowan. As the ball is hit to the outfield, the runner from second tries to score and the plate at the play is pretty awesome. It is shot from 2 different angles. Check it out and let us know what you think.

This weeks Video of the Week comes to us from Germany. About a month ago with the Haar Disciples facing off with the Heidenheim Heidekoepfe, there was a great play at the plate. Heidenheim’s Robert Gruber is out at the plate on a great play by Haar catcher David Selsemeyer.
This is an oldie but a favorite. Former minor leaguer Josh Womack shows off his bat skills for the camera. Don’t try this with anyone around, or near anything breakable because you will probably throw the bat.
