This Is What an RA Dickey Knuckleball Looks LIke


98 mph fastballs, 90 mph sliders, 85 mph twelve-to-six curveballs, all look equally impossible to hit. But if I had to give myself the smallest chance of squaring up a baseball, it would have to be the knuckleball. Remember when they used to have the cameras in the catchers’ helmets? I remember getting the catcher’s view of Tim Wakefield’s knuck. It was unreal. Nowadays we get to marvel over RA Dickey’s version of the knuckleball

This isn’t a catcher’s helmet view, but it’s an umpire’s view (who might have a job just as tough as hitting it). Filthy look nonetheless
