This classic sports story recounts the 2011 journey of the last professional knuckleball pitchers: Tim Wakefield, a 17-year Red Sox veteran, and Mets up-and-comer R.A. Dickey. Together with just four other living knuckleballers, they shine a light on their remarkable brotherhood and the shared pursuit of honor and craftsmanship.
*film is sold out, but there will be a standby list at the door on a first come, first served basis* Red Sox Great Tim Wakefield, director of film, ricki stern & Writer/Producer (and newportFILM Board Member), Christine Schomer, will be in attendance. This amazing evening is brought to you through the Horan Building Company’s generous support of newportFILM!

Documentarians Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg have chosen their latest -- and unlikeliest -- subject well. Like the tricky pitch it celebrates, Knuckleball!” is anything but a gimmick.
A brilliant documentary for any baseball fan, whether hardcore or casual.
