  • Knuckleball

    This article discusses the knuckleball and has a great slow motion gif of one from RA Dickey.

    No wonder it is so hard to hit. It's also looks hard to catch, particularly with your eyes closed.

    Last year I had a kid throw me a corkscrew knuckleball without warning.

    Not fun.

      That would be Wilhelm's "spinner". It's a thing of beauty.

        It will literally make you wonder if you're seeing things.

        I had no idea what that pitch was until I saw this clip, much less know that someone could throw it on purpose or repeat it (the one I saw was a lucky accident).

        Must be devastating, especially if you just show it.

          Incredible movement.
          I think you could literally tell a hitter that pitch is coming and they would not be able to center it up.
          Just a baseball layman trying to make sense of it all...
