he just tossed about 43 of them nowhere near anyone with a catcher's mitt
Two guys scored on a two out strike out that the catcher couldn't catch. So instead of inning over its a man on first and two runs in. There has to be someone that can catch that thing. Not everybody can.
ok this hannigan guy ain't great
It's like the Matrix. It's like a fuckin' wiffle ball. It's voodoo, I tells ya!
It stops, gets a cup of coffee, then goes on its merry way in a slightly different direction.
A guy I went to school with (who spent some time in the minors as a catcher) could throw a perfect knuckler with a softball. He could rattle off 20 in a row, I was mesmerized watching that fuckin' thing up close.
Yeah that is a fucked up pitch!
i'm watching the game right now. Dickey was great yesterday. should have had a knuckleball matchup
check out this knuckler from Dickey last night
....and his appearances on The Tonight Show were great!
I can't even get a whiffle ball to move like that.
As someone who has caught a knuckleball pitcher, trust me it is difficult as hell. The ball moves wherever it wants and at times you just want to get your mitt in the region of where the ball might end up.
The old butterfly knuckler. Nasty as fuck.
I tried to catch a knuckle ball picture. I was happy to keep it in front of me. I wasnt a very good catcher with any other pitch. smile:
I threw a knuckleball starting at age 11 in little league. Instead of the typical 2 fingernail grip, the ball rested on all 4 of my folded over knuckles. It was very effective, not because it only knuckled (maybe half the time), but the ball came in at 2/3rds the speed of my regular fastball, but with the same arm speed. Most kids would start swinging so early, they would lose balance. I threw it up until the age of 16, in Colt League.
He also once got on a bus and sat next to a beautiful tall Blonde Chinese girl who was saying she was a nymphomaniac who could only get turned on by Jewish cowboys and thus introduced himself as Bucky Goldstein.
