Watch: Felix Pie Tells Pitcher To Throw Strikes and Bonus Korean Baseball Video
Former Chicago Cubs top prospect Felix Pie gave some advice to a teammate recently that was administered in an unusual way. Pie, who has been patrolling centerfield this season for the Hanwha Eagles in the Korean Baseball Organization, felt his pitcher wasn’t throwing enough strikes. Instead of yelling from the outfield or taking his teammate aside in the dugout during innings, Pie decided to call time to run into the infield to get his message across.
If you watched the entire video you will see that the pitcher is not the only teammate of Pie’s that needs advice. A fly ball to left-center field that will end the inning was apparently called for by the Eagles left fielder but Pie has to reach out and make the catch somehow when the ball is between the pair. The look that Pie gives the left fielder is perfect.
However, that moment isn’t as perfect as a different game that also happened in the KBO. In the ninth inning of a game between the LG Twins and the NC Dinos an interesting moment happens at the plate. With the bases loaded for the Twins and a 3-2 count on the hitter, the runners are all on the move for the pitch. The game ends on a fly out to right but the bat narrowly misses the runner before the batter gives a great bat flip while he trips on the runner sliding into home.
