"The Knuckleballer" Now; "The Last Knuckleballer." (Title Change)
The main character in the work is a master craftsman of the "true" knuckleball pitch. The original true knuckleballer (knuckles down) pitched for the Redsox in 1908 and was known as "Knuckles." Overtime ohers begun to figure out that the same flitting effect could be achieved, and with greater control by simply clamping down on the rawhide with one's fingernails. The actual use of the knuckles in pushing and flipping the ball plateward has essentially been out of style for over ninety years.
However, the effect of a "true knuckleballer" has more of an arsenal in the two, three and four knuckleball together with the normal pitches" curve, screwball, fastball, slider, change up and fork ball. However, sometimes the catcher has a problem in catching and the umpire in calling the balls and strikes. But as Warren Spahn once said: "Hitting is timing. Pitching is upsetting timing." Especially, if those pitches are mastered and thrown overhand, 3/4, sidearm and submarine, and depending on the position of the batter at the plate.
