Knuckleball tells the story of baseball pitchers Tim Wakefield of theRed Sox and R.A. Dickey of the Mets as they go through the travails ofthe 2011 Major League Baseball season. In the process, viewers gaininsight into the mechanics, the lore, and the history of the fluxiestof baseball pitches.

Wakefield in particular comes across as a likable straight-shooter whodeveloped this pitch to salvage his hopes of making it to and stayingin the Bigs. Dickey follows in the footsteps of Wake, and seems poisedto carry the torch for knucklers into the 21st century. With greatinterviews and insights from Charlie Hough, Phil Niekro, and JimBouton, we learn that knuckleball pitchers are a small, proudfraternity who pass their wisdom down the line to keep the art of theknuckleball alive in an age of flamethrowers and the need for speed.

The art and chaos of the pitch itself lends itself well to the bigscreen, and for baseball fans and for anyone who loves to root for theunderdog, Knuckleball definitely delivers.

The knuckleball is an enigma in the sport of baseball. Only a handfulof pitchers in the 100+ year history of the game have thrown it wellenough to make a career out of it. This documentary focuses on twoknuckleballers in particular (Tim Wakefield & R.A. Dickey) in trying toshed some light on both the physical and mental side of being abaseball oddity.

There are basically two distinct themes running through this doc:

1. A history of the pitch, so to speak, in which former knucklers likeCharlie Hough, Wilbur Wood, Tom Candiotti, and Phil Niekro areinterview regarding their thoughts on their bread-and-butter pitch.

2. A narrower focus on Wakefield & Dickey, delving into more thepsychological toughness needed to soldier on despite being label abaseball "freak", of sorts.

This is a great little documentary for all baseball fans (especiallythose who vividly remember Wakefield's long career or Dickey's magicalrun with the Mets) and is about as unique as the fluttering pitchitself (I can't remember any other documentary covering similarmaterial). It is lighthearted, emotional, informative, and serious allat the same time.

The only reason I can't give it the full five stars? I wish it wouldhave focused on the personal stories of Wakefield/Dickey even a bitmore. Their interactions with the "old gang" of knuckleballers isgreat, don't get me wrong, but there are WAY too many slo-mo shoots offluttering knucklers used simply to fill time/space. The personalstories would have been compelling enough to explore even more fully.

Overall, though, this is a fun little baseball documentary that is veryprofessionally produced and doesn't try to "ruffle feathers" by makingoutrageous statements for publicity's sake. It is clear that thefilmmakers were truly interested in and inspired by their creation andthat fact shows in the final product.

Was lucky enough to catch this at the world premier free screening atthe Tribeca Film Festival last Saturday.

Really enjoyed its interesting and heart warming story telling aboutthe rare baseball bread of the knuckleball pitcher. Both looking backand looking forward the film brought the story of this select band ofpitchers beautifully to the screen.

R.A Dickey... such a class guy and there is something quite touchingthat he is the only knuckleballer left in the MLB. And you couldn'twish for a better champion of the 'freak' pitch.

Would happily watch it again. Congrats to all those involved.
