The website for "Knuckleball!" says that, other than Tim Wakefield and R.A. Dickey, there are “just four other living knuckleballers” – Phil Niekro, Charlie Hough, Wilbur Wood and Tom Candiotti. There are actually at least five other living knuckleballers. Daniel Boone A direct descendant of that Daniel Boone, this Daniel Boone jumpstarted a stagnant career with the knuckleball in 1989.  In 1991, he became the oldest player ever listed as a “rookie prospect” on a Score baseball card. Jared Fernandez “Fast knuckleballer” Jared Fernandez pitched parts of five seasons in the Majors in the early 2000s. Charlie Haeger While with the Chicago White Sox in 2007, Charlie Haeger actually pitched against Tim Wakefield. Steve Sparks In 2001, Steve Sparks led the American League in complete games with eight. Charlie Zink For one game in 2008, Charlie Zink was a teammate of Tim Wakefield with the Boston Red Sox. And why all this knuckleball talk?  Well, we've got our hands on a copy of the DVD "Knuckleball!" and we want you to have it!  It's simple.  In the comments section below, let us know your favorite knuckleball fact (feel free to check out some of ours), and if we pick yours...you win.
