Did anyone catch this interview last night..? It was a great interview. My heart went out to him when he talked about his childhood and all the horrible things that happened to him. I thought it was admirable that he pursued his dream even when faced with continued roadblocks and failures. He was also very lucky to have someone in his life who stood by him and loved him no matter what..and in the end was willing to believe in the power of redemption.
I was fascinated listening to him describe the knuckleball..and the video showing the differences between the pitches was wicked cool.
I did take issue with Lesley Stahl's comment that Dickey is credited with bringing back the knuckleball. Sorry Lesley..but that honor goes to Wakefield who mastered the knucklball ( as much as one can actually master a knuckleball).
