September is a great time to be a sports fan. College football is in full swing, the NFL is just getting started and Major League Baseball teams are fighting for their postseason lives. This September in particular, and today to be specific, sports fans have something even more exciting to look forward to as well. A documentary called Knuckleball, directed by Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg (Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work) was released today, both on demand and in select theaters.
The film tell the history of baseball’s most scrutinized and joked about pitch, the knuckleball, through the personal struggles of pitchers Tim Wakefield, formerly of the Boston Red Sox, and R.A. Dickey, currently of the New York Mets. It’s a fascinating, inspirational documentary that will please both baseball and non-baseball fans alike. But especially baseball fans. And out of those, especially Red Sox and Mets fans.
/Film is proud to premiere an exclusive clip from the film. Check it out after the jump along with some other thoughts on the movie. Read More »
