For Pete's Sake

Japanese player has the craziest, funniest, wildest at-bat ritual

If you have the sound off on your computer, turn it on.

I’ll wait.

This video of a Japanese baseball player and his interesting antics in the batter’s box is best viewed with the audio of the band playing while he’s at the plate.

Funny stuff, although I don’t think that would fly in the majors for two reasons:

1. The pace of play rules.

2. He’d get hit by a pitch.

Someone on Twitter posted this video, too:
