SEOUL, July 24 (Yonhap) -- A South Korean baseball pitcher voluntarily reported that he had engaged in match-fixing schemes in 2014, the governing body of the country's professional baseball said Sunday.

Yoo Chang-sik, a left-handed pitcher from Kia Tigers, confessed to his team on Saturday that he had fixed the game on April 1, 2014, the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) said.

The revelation is the latest in a series of KBO players being investigated over similar charges, including Lee Tae-yang, pitcher for the NC Dinos and outfielder Moon Woo-ram.

Yoo allegedly fixed the plays during the game against Samsung Lions, the KBO said.
