The KBO (Korean Baseball Organization recently held a bunt contest as part of its All-Star festivities. Yes, bunts are lame and managers should stop calling them, but this contest is pretty awesome:

The contest entails batters bunting down the first and third base line. Doosan’s Heo Kyung-Min won this year’s contest with a perfect bunt tdropped down the third base line. As the video shows, the contest looks similar to a video game. Players have to place the ball into an animated circle in order to win the contest.

Kyung-Min wins the contest with a hell of a bunt, but he has his share of bat flips that would make Jose Bautista blush:

There was even a pitcher’s contest!

Would you be interested in MLB adding in different skills competitions like these to go with the Home Run Derby?
