Tim Wakefield and R.A. Dickey make up most of this knuckleball pitch-based documentary. While some of the classic knuckleball pitchers were highlighted, the creators of the film really wanted to show the risks and rewards of being a modern day knuckleball pitcher. I think they did well, for the most part. The film was pretty linear with about even amounts of Wakefield and Dickey's struggles shown. However, the film wasn't really about the pitch so much as the men throwing them. It really dove into the emotional struggles behind their careers instead of the careers themselves. I think if the creators had focused on all knuckleball pitchers instead of the modern two, the documentary would have seemed more successful. Still good though.
