A "k" is a strikeout, from the abbreviation used to denote a strikeout when scoring baseball on a scorecard. In some stadiums, simply "k" is the denotation; in others, there is a distinction made between a "k" and one which is written backwards. A "k" written forwards means that the battter struck out swinging (he swung at the last pitch, producing the final strike). A "k" written backwards means that the batter struck out looking (he did not swing at the pitch that produced the final strike). In broadcasting, "posting a k" simply means that the batter struck out and does not distinguish between a batter who struck out swinging and one who struck out looking.

Looking is backwards. A looking strikeout is subjective to the home plate umpire that night. A swinging strikeout is objective. No doubt that he missed on that third strike; that's a K. K=swinging forward. Backwards K=looking backwards at the umpire and being K'ed

It is a reference to how it is kept in the scorebook. A K is a strikeout. A backwards K is a strikeout looking.

The backwards K is to signify struk out looking versus the standard K that is strike out swinging so then you can keep them straight in the score books they used to be weighted differently as for how good/bad pitchers/batters were.
