Former San Francisco Giants Pitcher Eric Hacker To Play In Korea

By Bryan Rose

Earlier this offseason, the San Francisco Giants re-signed pitcher Eric Hacker to a minor league contract – but it appears the oft traveled arm will be taking his talents to Korea.

Hacker wasn’t assured of a roster spot and would’ve most likely spent the vast majority of his season at Fresno, so rather than spend another season in the minors, Hacker agreed to a deal with the NC Dinos of the Korean Baseball Organization.

Eric pitched in four games for the Giants last season, picking up a loss in his 9.2 innings of work, but should get himself a dandy of a prize for those few short innings – a World Series ring.
