In an era of bigger, faster, and stronger, the slow-moving but evasive knuckleball remains an anomaly in Major League Baseball. The new documentary Knuckleball! from directors Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg (who also directed the acclaimed documentary Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work) explores one of the game's biggest mysteries, and the lives of the few men who have made a living throwing it. The fascinating story is told through copious archival footage and interviews with knuckleballers past and present, including Phil Niekro, Jim Bouton, Charlie Hough, current Mets star R.A. Dickey, and Tim Wakefield, who retired earlier this year after winning two World Championships with the Boston Red Sox.

Wakefield, along with directors Stern and Sundberg, join Evan "Funk" Davies tonight to discuss the documentary, which has its world premiere outdoors this coming Saturday night as part of the Tribeca Drive-In series at the World Financial Center. (Get there early for knuckleball pitching clinics with R.A. Dickey, Tim Wakefield and Jim Bouton!) Visit TribecaFilm.com for more info on Knuckleball!, and don't miss this special even-more-baseball-than-usual edition of The Evan "Funk" Davies Show!

In honor of Tim Wakefield I will not mention R.A. Dickey's start today...

  Wed. 4/18/12 9:19pm john:

Hell, pick up your own damn poop next time.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:20pm john:

I meant that for Resentful Pooch, of course, but there's no reason it shouldn't obtain for the rest of you.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:20pm Resentful Pooch:

That's YOUR JOB :-)
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:20pm Danne D:

SSD ever had a baseball player? - I mean they had the uni watch guy so that's kinda close
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:21pm Danne D:

So EFD, you have to figure Aharon will probably be picking up Tim Wakefield in the EFDHHDYDTY Fantasy Baseball League tonight, right?
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:22pm john:

Shhhh, I'm trying to trade him Charlie Hough.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:23pm Danne D:

and that's how it goes, yeah, and that's how it goes...
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:26pm miss cheri:

danne i know that you're not interested about this,,but i recomend you go see "the three stooges" i bet you'll enjoy it!
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:28pm Danne D:

Didn't see the remake of Manchurian Candidate either cheri. Some things should be left alone.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:30pm john:

bark!
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:30pm Roberto:

Ricki Stern! Her kid went to preschool with my kid. Totally useless info for y'all.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:30pm Mike East:

Manchurian Candidate remake was such a waste of my time. You made the right decision on that one, Danne D. Good evening everyone

Hey Mike East.

Side note - Groundhog Day is one of my favorite movies ever, if not my favorite.

Hi everyone! Thanks for tuning in, greatly appreciated as always!
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:37pm miss cheri:

hi there evan--what's cooking? i'm sorry i missed you last week,, i was on vacay.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:37pm keving:

Only caught you giving the title of the song and initially thought you were talking about the MGMT song about the TVPs. Never gave that band a thought, but turned the stereo up since you were apparently playing them, and thought, 'Wow, this band is actually way better than I thought!" Guess I'll continue to stick with my instincts.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:38pm steve:

second time i randomly tune info fmu today and second time i hear a song ive liked before and didnt know what it was! red mass!! thanks you efd!!
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:39pm Danne D:

ooh bases loaded Double for Napoli - 2 runs score :)
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:40pm miss cheri:

evan & danne just off the cuff--what's your all time fave movie??
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:40pm Danne D:

My catchers have accounted for 10 of my team's 14 HR, 31 of my team's 67 RBI and even 2 of my team's 20 stolen bases :) Maybe this 4-catcher strategy isn't all bad.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:43pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@miss Cheri. Did you see The Three Stooges while on vacay?
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:45pm Just Guessing:

@BS: She Went Daily, and twice when there were matinees.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:45pm miss cheri:

yes i did,,i loved it!!
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:46pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Top notch.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:46pm Pop Culture Expert:

Cute girls universally love The Three Stooges so much that even pointless remakes elicit aroused raves from them.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:46pm Andrew Waterloo:

Been awhile since I've been to the cinema outside of entertaining an 8 year-old
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:47pm john:

Slumberland is on a roll this year. More than usually, I mean. Terry Malts, Allo Darlin', Veronica Falls, Violens, Evans The Death, all brilliant!
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:47pm miss cheri:

larry david is also in it,
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:48pm Andrew Waterloo:

I wonder if I should shave my head and go to the three stooges looking curly like
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:48pm Danne D:

@Pop Culture Expert - this is not my experience
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:49pm Pop Culture Expert:

it's called sarcasm. cheri is a very odd as cute girls go.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:50pm miss cheri:

well efd & danne i have to split once again,, i'm really sorry,,but i'll be back later,, bye for now!!
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:50pm Pop Culture Expert:

she has to go shave her legs.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:51pm Manolo:

Great opening this love is our address by vhf have. The guitar riff is incredible.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:52pm miss cheri:

pop culture you're weird
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:52pm Danne D:

@Pop I'll gladly take your word for it.

Btw - temporarily 1st place in the fantasy league!!!
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:53pm Pop Culture Expert:

  Wed. 4/18/12 9:53pm Pap Culture Dish:

and her tongue.
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:57pm Danne D:

Be cool if we hear some Baseball Project tonight. If EFD has his trigger finger on the bleep button he can do that Ted Williams song :)
  Wed. 4/18/12 9:58pm G:

Well, FMU already has two accidental F words for the day :-) (see SSD, 6:27-28)
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:00pm Danne D:

@G we don't talk about such things :)
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:00pm Danne D:

I believe they were actually just referring to our Beloved EFD by his nickname.
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:01pm G:

They haven't put the archive up yet. Gotta launder it first. And consult with counsel. :-)
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:01pm Mike East:

For many reasons, I hope the FCC does not read the comments
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:02pm G:

Wouldn't surpise me if they get taken down, Mike. :-)
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:02pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Old Chills. Tops.
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:04pm Danne D:

@Mike East and G: Evan is publicity shy so that's probably why they might take that stuff out.
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:06pm john:

Danne, At the Met last week, Baseball Project censored that song in deference to the location, apparently because nobody has ever sworn at a museum before. And you're lucky I was out all day and didn't have a chance to put Justin Morneau in my lineup tonight!
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:08pm keving:

Never actually heard any early Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers before. Will now definitely have to look into this.
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:09pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Evan! Hi everyone!

First time commenting here (as myself anyway...) proud to say that I've been listening along the whole time--with a new iPad and the WFMU App I can listen while taking a late night and cleaning up!
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:09pm Danne D:

s'up Matt :)
Avatar Wed. 4/18/12 10:11pm efd:

hey Matt, nice to see you on the pm side!

@keving, first 2-3 Petty albums are definitely worth a look - and a listen!
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Danne! :)
Late night *dinner* I meant. Evan's show is like the Studio 54 of FMU--everyone's here! While I don't comment on every show I have playing, I might as well start here, since I now leave some comments with Mary Wing right after :)
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:13pm Danne D:

Sens-Rag$ going to overtime - this will take we out of comment world for a while in a few minutes. Go Sens Go!
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:15pm Matt from Springfield:

Isn't "Time To Go" the Flying Nun comp covering 1981-86 that was just released?
Avatar Wed. 4/18/12 10:21pm efd:

Matt, yes, that's correct!
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:21pm Danne D:

@EFD I'm not quite sure that the 5-knuckle shuffle is really the key to developing a good knuckleball.
Avatar Wed. 4/18/12 10:21pm efd:

a little scatterbrained tonight!
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:21pm miss cheri:

evan tell me something,, do you think i should quit commenting on your show?
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:22pm G:

Yes, and one online source gives March 6th as the release date, Matt. I'm not sure what the south is -- maybe (a joke about???) southern New Zealand????
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:22pm Matt from Springfield:

@Evan: Already have the "In Love With These Times" and "Pink Flying Saucers Over The Southern Alps", so I was ecstatic when I first heard that comp came out!
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:23pm Danne D:

Yay :) Baseball Project :)
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: Not only the very Southern Hemisphere, but probably refs the very south of NZ itself. Some called the Flying Nun style "the Dunedin Sound". (Done-Eden sound, at least that's how Kiwis say that).

  Wed. 4/18/12 10:33pm Danne D:

Only thing about as rare as the knuckler is the screwball
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:34pm Danne D:

Probably my favorite All Star Game moment was watching Charlie Hough throw to some poor catcher who had never caught the knuckleball before. Like 3 of 'em went to the backstop I think.
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:34pm Danne D:

Hough just stood there laughing on the mound.
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:35pm john:

Yankees lose! Thuhhhhhhh Yankees lose!
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:36pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: Is the "screwball" an actual baseball pitch?
Not just a name for a "cut-up" person?
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:36pm Danne D:

I heard on the radio (I think it was an interview with Dickey) apparently there are a couple kids in the minors that use a knuckleball.
  Wed. 4/18/12 10:37pm Danne D:

@Matt yes - Hector Santiago (White Sox) uses it

Thanks Danne, G. (Hector Santiago mentioned in list)

@Holly, I'd never cheer on your stress level, but one can't help but feel at least a hint of joy when that last out settles into the right fielder's glove as the fans in the Bronx cheer for the home run that wasn't....

  Wed. 4/18/12 11:00pm Danne D:

@Matt yes my team was named in honor of that epic Bill Mac Hoof N Mouth performance from '07. The painting is one of the many velvet paintngs that Ken has purchased for the station.

@EFD - very deft answer, sir
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:14pm Matt from Springfield:

That's a great inspiration, Danne! A truly heroic underdog.
And an epic performance by Bill Mac! That arrangement was kind of Pogues style--is that how Killdozer played it?

I wish. That would be @motorco - they led they way in reclaiming a totally abandoned, sad & kinda scary 3 blocks of downtown Durham, a little corner which is now, according to recent visitor Carrie Brownstein more Portland than Portland. I dunno about that, but it's friendly & welcoming & vibrant & very, very Durham, warts & all. Right next to the old aka *real* Durham Bulls ballpark.
@Cheri, excuse me? :-)

I see my gender was already confirmed. I am woman, hear me roar!
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Sugaru? I drive an almost "Sugaru"...
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Stu Spasm!
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:23pm Holly in NC:

@Matt - I ADORE my ancient yet hale & hearty Sugaru Outback! Like Jack LaLanne (er, like Jack LaLanne up to last year (crosses self)
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@Holly: Jack Lalanne was and still is enviable--an honor for a car to be as fit as he was! (I have a Sugaru Impreza...)

Rock!
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:30pm Holly in NC:

efd - this new mount carmel is great to play at cookouts when you don't know all the guests.

hipster/redneck venn diagram success!
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:30pm Biker Dude Named Holly:

Holly is a GIRL'S NAME????? OH FUCKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!! So that's why they treat me so bad!!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:31pm Johnny Cash:

Try Sue instead, man
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Sue at least builds character. And upper body strength.
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:34pm Johnny Cash:

Bingo.
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:34pm Mud, blood and beer:

Get off of me already.
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:35pm radiobelly:

trippy white hills yo.
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:39pm G:

this ruckus roboticus is an advance copy! (release date april 27)
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:39pm SteveL:

Gonna have to check out the archives for White Hills' gig, last week was it?
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:39pm Holly in NC:

@efd - you should pitch an ad campaign to Sugaru!

@everyone - y'know how most folks have names that mean "wise, gallant, fair-haired first child who will lead the world", or something to that effect? 'Holly' means "prickly shrub". That really bothered me when I was little.
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, ruckus roboticus, out of sight!
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:41pm Anatomist:

Both sexes have prickly shrubs, and that's a fact
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:41pm Dave Hester:

Yuuuuuuuuppppppp!!!
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:41pm Small World Alert:

single "Ira Glass" by Adam Warrock & Ruckus Roboticus (2010)
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:41pm Nacho:

yay, i won tickets!
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:42pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm wondering just how Holly became a female name--the old carol "The Holly and The Ivy" originates in pagan traditions of celebrating the winter solstice. Apparently this symbolized the sexuality between man and woman. (The ivy is broad and it spreads, and the holly pricks! Get it?)
Avatar Wed. 4/18/12 11:42pm efd:

Ruckus Roboticus rules.

@SteveL, White Hills live set was 2 weeks ago, and it smoked! Just listened to it the other day myself.
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:43pm Holly in NC:

@anatomist - Recently a lot pop-blogs have posited that female pubic hair is going the way of the dodo.
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:44pm Small World Alert:

In the under 40 set, yes, north of that it's a dice throw.
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:45pm Holly in NC:

@Matt - so,so, I'm transgendered?
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:45pm Forrest:

My momma said pubic hair is like a box of chocolates -- you never know what you're gonna get.
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:46pm Matt from Springfield:

@Holly: Don't think of it that way. If you can't avoid thinking of it that way...you listen to Irwin's show? There's a terrific and feminine singer called "Ivy" he plays... ;)
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:47pm Holly in NC:

@smallworld Erm.. Let's just say if someone wants me to look like a prepubescent, they are sh*t out if luck, in all ways.

Obviously no one should need to pick their teeth, either...
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@Holly: Also...what??! Save the, um, "dodo"!!!
But only *certain* kinds of "dodo"...
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:48pm Forrest:

Holly almost mistyped "the way of the dildo", but caught herself before hitting send :-P
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:49pm Holly in NC:

Well hey then!

I really need to purchase le chelsea beat
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:49pm Aharon:

Hey, I saw that, Danne!

Gotta say, this music soothes after spending too much of the evening in the presence of Free Energy.
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Le chelsea beat is great--but don't listen to it in a theatre.
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:50pm Holly in NC:

@Forrest, - really, "Forrest" ? good one!
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:51pm Danne D:

congrats Nacho :)
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:51pm Noah Webster:

Formatics???? Gotta add that in the next edition.
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:52pm Noah Webster:

@efd: One song set = "Uniset" :-P
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:52pm Danne D:

lol s'up Trader Aharon? :)
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:52pm Holly in NC:

@Forrest - oh heck, I just got the Gump reference - I was thinking bush, wood, whatever. Time for me to STOP commenting!
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:52pm Danne D:

I missed the medical portion of the comments apparently
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:53pm Forrest:

Dirty, dirty, dirty minded girl. I like it :-P :-P
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:53pm Aharon:

Gotta get in under the wire, Danne. The waiver wire and every other wire. 'Sup?
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:54pm Holly in NC:

@Matt - oy, the Scottish play
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:55pm Danne D:

Thanks for a great show Evan :)
Hope everyone in Funkland has a wonderful night :)
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:57pm Holly in NC:

Evan, thank you
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:57pm Danne D:

Holly hope you play hooky from work and hit that show tomorrow :)
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Excellent show Evan!
Yes, everyone in Funkland have a great night!
  Wed. 4/18/12 11:58pm Holly in NC:

No hooky - it's babysitting 4 year olds.
  Thu. 4/19/12 12:00am Matt from Springfield:

@Holly: I'm not advising you to do anything unethical, though a 4 hour Spongebob DVD will keep them FIXATED for the whole time! :)
  Thu. 4/19/12 12:00am Danne D:

Take 'em to the show then ;)

Anyway gnight all :)
  Thu. 4/19/12 12:01am Spoony:

GREAT SHOW!
  Thu. 4/19/12 12:01am G:

Put 30 or 60 minutes of Spongey on autorepeat. They will not notice or care that it repaets over and over.
  Thu. 4/19/12 4:41am Bill:

A veteran desk guy in office some years ago arranged to get a tour of Fenway for he and his son.They came upon Wakefield throwing in cage somewhere. He immediately came over to the boy, talked to him, showed him how he threw, signed a ball. Ray, who also worked as a reporter as inside guys did in those days, said it was the most touching thing he had experienced in all his years in the biz and he had a few. Not too much time after that he died suddenly, shocking us all. His son was still very young. I think of Ray, a huge Yankee fan, every time I hear Wakefield's name.
