SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - A South Korean millionaire who founded the country's first independent baseball club has joined an American team as a knuckleball pitcher.
The Goyang Wonders say 37-year-old Hur Min is joining the Rockland Boulders, a team in the Canadian American Association of Professional Baseball, also known as the Can-Am League.
The oddball entrepreneur was trained to throw a knuckleball for the past eight years. Baseball Hall of Famer Phil Niekro has been one of his teachers.
Hur made it big when his company's online game became popular in China. He said in a 2011 interview that his assets are close to 1 trillion won ($899 million).
