The LA Dodgers new Japanese pitcher Hideo Nomo is on tv all the
time here, and when he gets a strikeout, fans line up big "K" letters. I
certainly don't remember this practice from when I was a kid and went to
Cardinals or Braves games. Does anyone know what the "K"s mean (is it for
"kill"?) and when and how this got started?
