SEOUL, Dec. 30 (Yonhap) -- A local professional baseball club on Monday admitted to having once signed a pitcher to an illegal, multiyear contract, potentially opening a can of worms in a league that has long faced allegations of turning a blind eye to similar practices.

The Doosan Bears in the top-flight Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) acknowledged that they had inked pitcher Lee Hei-chun to a four-year deal in December 2010, when the left-hander returned from a two-year stint in Japan.
