The Korea Times is reporting that officials are searching for evidence of match-fixing attempts in the Korea Baseball Organization (as well as the Korean Basketball League).  A snip:

According to prosecutors, the arrested broker, surnamed Kim, said on Monday he heard about match-fixing schemes in the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) and the Korean Basketball League (KBL) games, from another broker surnamed Kang.

"We will check with individual clubs to see how, if any, match fixing has taken place," a KBO official said. "But unless players report themselves, it will be difficult to find out just what has gone on."

One team official, who requested anonymity, said he has "never before heard of rumors" about possible match-fixing in baseball, but added, "Before things get out of hand, our club will conduct our own inquiry."
