R.A. Dickey

As a former Nashvillian who worked not too far from Montgomery Bell Academy, I'm a big fan of R.A. Dickey. He has not had a ton of success as a knuckler, but it has allowed him to keep playing a kid's game for a nice salary long after injuries robbed him of his natural talent. Below is one of the better videos I have seen trying to explain/show how to throw a knuckleball. It's a hard thing to tame.

By the way, how did Capel get to do this story? Buster Olney is the Vandy grad who really knows Dickey's old stomping grounds the best.
