"Documentarians Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg have chosen their latest -- and unlikeliest -- subject well. Like the tricky pitch it celebrates, “Knuckleball!” is anything but a gimmick." - Bloomberg

"A brilliant documentary for any baseball fan, whether hardcore or casual." - Movie Buzzers

This classic sports story recounts the 2011 journey of the last professional knuckleball pitchers: Tim Wakefield, a 17-year Red Sox veteran, and Mets up-and-comer R.A. Dickey. Together with just four other living knuckleballers, they shine a light on their remarkable brotherhood and the shared pursuit of honor and craftsmanship.
