Seoul (South Korea), January 14: The South Korean baseball club SK Wyverns announced Thursday they've hired veteran pitching coach Brandon Knight to help their new foreign players.
Knight, 45, pitched in the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) from 2009 to 2014 before turning to scouting and then coaching in the league. He'd been the pitching coach for the Kiwoom Heroes for the past four seasons.
The Wyverns said Knight will be tasked with assisting their two new foreign pitchers, Wilmer Font and Artie Lewicki, on everything from training to getting acclimated to the Korean and KBO culture. The Wyverns said Knight will stay with the team through March 31.
