The LG Twins took on the Doosan Bears in KBO action on Sunday and during the game Twins’ Dong-hwan Choi faced a crisis on the mound when forced to make an important decision.

The pitcher threw a low ball, which the umpire assumed had hit the dirt, but the catcher knew had not, leading both the ump and catcher to toss balls back to the mound. Facing two rapidly approaching baseballs, Choi did the only thing he could in the situation: he dropped to the ground in fear.

The announcers got some pretty hearty laughs out of the incident, but Choi walked away from the game with a 16–8 victory and just a slight bruise to his ego.
