Former Mariners’ first baseman Dae-ho Lee cranked a shot near the foul pole that was pretty obviously fair. But the umpires didn’t see that and initially ruled it as a foul ball.
Lee was so confident that it was a home run that he immediately turned to the dugout and signaled for a replay review. Not only did he ask for the review, he also walked around the bases during said review.
Lee Dae-ho with the slowest home run trot of the day.
Lee immediately called for a replay review and then slowly walked around the rest of the bases during the review.

Lee was correct, the ball was fair and the replay got it right. So he got to step on home plate after it was all said and done.
