Via Larry Brown Sports:

Former video game CEO Min Huh does not need money. Or should I say, the type of money that is associated with being a pitcher in the Can-Am League likely does not excite him. Back in 2011, the 37-year-old Huh sold his incredibly successful gaming company, known as Neople, to video game juggernaut Nexon for hundreds of millions of dollars. Since then, he has turned his attention to baseball.

After selling Neople, Huh founded a Korean professional baseball team called the Goyang Wonders. For the past seven years or so, he has been trying to perfect the art of the knuckleball. According to MSN Korea, he has done a good enough job to earn himself a spot on the Rockland Boulders (Can-Am League) roster.

From there, Huh is hoping to develop his knuckleball enough to be able to pitch for a team in the United States. As we have seen with players like RA Dickey, knuckleball pitchers can be late bloomers. The odds are stacked against Huh, but the multi-millionaire picked the right pitch to work with.
