Knuckleball

The knuckleball is as famous a pitch as it is notorious — notoriously hard for pitchers to throw, catchers to catch, batters to hit, and umpires to judge. It's a pitch that only a small, elite group of pitchers have mastered, and one that defined their careers. Knuckleball ($11) follows two pitchers through the 2011 season, R.A. Dickey of the New York Mets, and Tim Wakefield of the Boston Red Sox, detailing their bond formed over the knuckler. It also draws parallels to the careers of the only other five living knuckleballers, while examining the history of that slow, unpredictable pitch.
