MLB umpires help at Hopkins

Korean baseball pitcher Lim Chang-yong of the Kia Tigers paid the price for an awful pick-off attempt during a Korea Baseball Organization game.

Lim was on the mound with Oh Jae-won of the Doosan Bears on second. Oh's lead off of second grew a little too big for Lim's liking, so he fired a pick-off attempt toward second base.

However, nobody on the Tigers was on second, and Lim's throw missed wildly, nearly smacking Oh in the head before hurtling into the outfield. Luckily, Oh ducked out of the way.

The attempt was so bad that, according to ESPN's Elizabeth Baugh, Lim was suspended for three games and forced to do 120 hours of community service.

Here's a better angle of where, exactly, Lim was throwing.

Afterward, Oh looked startled by nearly being decapitated.

The two met on the mound with the umpires, but despite the smile, Oh didn't appear pleased with Lim.

It's unclear if Lim's throw was malicious or simply poorly executed, but he paid the price regardless.
