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.

This is an interesting documentary for baseball fans. Much of theiconic attributions to baseball's knuckle-ballers has been made beforeby sportscasters during games, but this is fun to watch nonetheless.The movie focuses on two pitchers in 2011, Tim Wakefield, and R.A.Dickey. I believe Dickey is still pitching in 2013 for the Blue Jays.

There is a tendency in documentary filmmaking to include too muchfootage, and "Knuckleball" is no different. The documentary jumps backand forth in time rather than follow a chronological order. The samecrowd shots are used multiple times. There is footage of the pitchersdriving around in cars. There is a lot of game footage of the twopitchers which becomes tiresome after an hour. Just when you thinkthere is going to be some breakthrough or change of pace in the film,it lapses back into footage from the mid 2000's. There is excessivecoverage of the Red Sox-Yankees series.

This movie would be good for people who aren't familiar with pitchingstyles or the history of the famous knuckle-ballers in baseball.

There are entertaining interviews with Niekro, Hough, and Wilbur Wood.

In short, this documentary is about 15 minutes too long. It is a goodbet for serious baseball fans.

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.
