Why is a strikeout marked with a k?

You can blame a man named Henry Chadwick. He was in the process of perfecting the baseball score card. S was already used for Sacrifice, so he used the K (the last letter in "struck"). This ended out working perfectly anyway, because when a batter is struck out looking (without swinging) there is nothing on a score card that can be confused with a backwards K.

Why does baseball use a k for a strikeout?

The use of the last letter of Struck instead of the first to denote a strikeout dates back to when Henry Chadwick developed the box score in the late 1850's. Chadwick often used the last letter instead of the first, especially if he considered that letter to be the more prominent one in the word. Chadwick said "the letter K in struck is easier to remember in connection with the word, than S." He also used L for Foul and D for Catch on Bound. Only the K survived into the 20th Century.
