Knuckleball! (2012)
« on: June 13, 2013, 07:20:20 pm »

I've been itching to see this one for a while. I got in on the wait list pretty early and it still seemed to take just as long to arrive at my library. Definitely worth the wait. With a name like Knuckleball!, you know it's aimed squarely at Baseball fan enthusiasts like myself. I can never get enough movies or documentaries about the sport. In this doc, the entire movie centers around the most compelling and hardest pitch to master in the sport....the Knuckleball. Great doc that follows a legend behind the pitch in Tim Wakefield as well as the last remaining Knuckerballer (at the time of the movie) in the Big Leagues, R. A. Dickey.

Overall, the film makes a nice companion piece to Ken Burns' epic documentary, simply titled Baseball. Baseball fans in general will flock to Knuckleball and love it. But I think the film does a great job of dissecting the pitch as well as creating an easy rapport with the players to understand what it's like to rely on an unpredictable pitch to help your team win but to also keep oneself employed. Definitely worth a Rent for both fans and non-fans alike.
