    Hardcover Þ Knuckleball PDF ñ knuckleball pdf, Knuckleball ePUBIf you're a diehard baseball fan chances are that you're fascinated and amused by the knuckleball a slow moving pitch thrown so that it has little to no rotation which causes it to move unpredictably in the air baffling hitters This book is a history of the pitchers rather few of them who have made a living throwing themThe book has a pretty good grasp of facts the few errors I noticed were trivial and would make a decent enough read for someone in the middle stages of developing their knowledge of baseball history More knowledgeable readers will not find much of interest that they didn't already know and will probably be bothered by the book's lack of depth it's pretty much a narration of surface facts and gathered quotes To the extent that Freedman attempts to provide any insight it's laughable when h
