Video Game CEO Becomes Minor League Baseball Pitcher

Video Game CEO Becomes a Minor League Baseball Pitcher

Some people dream of being a game company boss. Former Korean game company boss Min Huh dreams of playing professional baseball. And those dreams are now a reality.

According to Korean site Inven and MSN Korea, Huh recently joined the minor league baseball team Rockland Boulders as a pitcher in the Can-Am League.

Previously, the 37-year-old Huh made his name (and fortune) as CEO of Korean game studio Neople, known for beat 'em up game Dungeon Fighter Online.

In 2011, Huh cashed out, selling Neople to Korean gaming giant Nexon for hundreds of millions. That same year, he founded a professional baseball team, the Goyang Wonders, and for the past seven years, he's been working on his knuckleball. In the above Joongang file photo, you can see him already holding what looks like his knuckler.

And now, he's making the leap from amateur to pro.
