Beautiful Story Telling
27 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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

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

R.A Dickey... such a class guy and there is something quite touching that he is the only knuckleballer left in the MLB. And you couldn't wish for a better champion of the 'freak' pitch.

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