Mystery Blogger K’s 2013 theme: “All things about writing from A to Z”
K is for Strikeout.
I never knew this, did you? Here’s what the post was about:
“We owe the “K” for representing a strikeout in baseball to an early sportswriter named Henry Chadwick. In fact, Chadwick and another writer named M.J. Kelly are largely responsible for the scoring system used today. But whence the K? Chadwick already had “S” slated for “sacrifice.” So a strikeout became a “K”, after the last letter of the word “struck.” The reason a strikeout isn’t a “T” is because “struck” was the preferred term of the day. By the way, a backwards K means the batter struck out without swinging (looking).
Who was it? HINT: This blogger likes to cruise.
