Junseo Cho won’t take “ball” for an answer.

The South Korean catcher framed a pitch for more than five seconds as he tried to sell this offering from starter Junho Jeong during Sunday’s Little League World Series championship against the United States.

Shortly thereafter, Cho’s persistence paid off when he skillfully, if a little obviously, moved Jeong’s pitch about an inch closer to the plate and received the strike call he’d so desperately coveted.

Despite the young catcher’s best efforts, South Korea lost Sunday’s final 2-1 to the Maine-Endwell team from New York, marking the first time the U.S. has won the tournament since 2011.
