My son and I were playing catch yesterday and I was trying to throw a knuckleball. He laughed saying I was trying to be R.A. Dickey. I laughed at the fact he knew R.A. Dickey. Guess he watches a lot of Sports Center. This documentary to be released on digital platforms in September.
Acclaimed documentarians Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg deconstruct the unpredictable and erratic pitching style known as the knuckleball in this highly entertaining and enlightening sports doc. Anchoring the history of the controversial pitch itself are the trials and triumphs of two of its best known practitioners in the major league: veteran Tim Wakefield of the Red Sox as he struggles to clinch his 200th career win, and up-and-comer R.A. Dickey looking to make a name for himself with the New York Mets.
