Video: Umpire turns into ninja, avoids line drive to face

Whew! That was close.

One umpire in the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) watched his life flash before his eyes on Tuesday night during a game between the Tigers and Lions as a line drive came right towards his face.

Luckily, the umpire was able to think fast to avoid the ball and save his life.

With the ball rapidly approaching, it looked like the umpire quickly stepped into the matrix with his ninja-like reflexes to get his body out of the way with one slick move.

Just check it out.

This man could be on his way to being a national hero. At the very least, he’s a real life ninja that everyone can admire.

All he needs to do is find a way to teach others around the KBO his matrix-like ways.
