    Coach Nolin,
    I would really like to become a knuckleball pitcher because I played around with it in my HS career and it became my out pitch. I could never master the change up so I used it as my change up but many coaches told me it was a garbage pitch and that they would never call it in a game. The coaches would get mad at me if i threw it…[Read more]

    I am a RHP who underwent tommy john surgery in my senior HS year. I have missed out on my college D1 scholarship opportunity due to my injury. I throw a knuckle curve ball that is very effective. I want to pursue learning how to be a knuckleball pitcher so I can try out again for my college team as a walk on this fall 2019. I would love to…[Read more]

    I work on and think about the knuckleball everyday. I am really stuggling with switching back and forth from fastball to knuckleball and vise versa. Is there a trick to it?

    • I can’t say there’s really one trick to it, but try this — wait to accelerate on both the fastball and the knuckleball. Have the patience to wait until the ball can be delivered to the target in a straight line. Fight the urge to accelerate when the ball is behind your head in the cocked positions and wait until the ball is out in front of you to…[Read more]

    I get knuckleballers all over the world contacting me about the difficulty of the knuckleball. I think we’ve all been there. We’re out in the backyard and we want to show off our awesome pitch, but it just isn’t […]

    Knuckleball Network — What’s the most difficult thing about the knuckleball? Is it consistency, throwing strikes, the mentality?

    Hey Chris,
    I bought all of your DVD’s last January. I am a traditional pitcher and a pitching coach at a local baseball academy. I was asked by a player I was coaching, “How do you throw a knuckleball?” I made it a goal to learn. The DVD’s are helpful, but I have to say the knuckleball is the most finicky pitch in baseball. I will throw 4-5…[Read more]

    • Thanks for the purchase, PJ. I understand the frustration with the knuckleball. Sometimes it can feel like you take two steps forward only to take one step back the next day.

      But the real advantage of the videos is that it takes all the guesswork out of the learning process. You don’t have to go chasing ideas that may or may not work in the long…[Read more]

  • RA Dickey’s had one helluva second half, but he didn’t get traded to a contender. The Braves hold an option on him. At 42, do you guys think he’ll continue playing on a bad team when he’s got 5 or 6 kids at home? Or do you think he’ll retire?

    • Hunter, thanks for joining the Knuckleball Network. Shreveport, huh? I used to play against the old Shreveport-Bossier Captains before they folded. Got any video of you throwing? I encourage you to post it here. If you click the “share” button on YouTube, choose “Embed” and it’ll give you a code. Post that code here and the video should play…[Read more]

      • That’s cool, I went to their games and played on that field in travel ball when I was a teenager. Right now I don’t have any videos, but I’ll be playing in Texarkana next week with national urban professional baseball league, might have some vids then. I’m a lefty knuckler.

    • Welcome to The Knuckleball Network. I’m hoping to really grow this social network to connect every knuckleballer in the country. A lefty knuckleballer? I’m jealous. I’ve only ever seen one other. He’s a college knuckler from Texas and I’m sure he’ll sign up here soon. What’s your name? Where are you from?

      • Hi Chris, I am Kade Hunkapiller from Venice FL, I played 2 years with State College of Florida Junior College and now transferred with a athletic scholarship to play for Lyon’s college in Batesville, AR. I am self taught and have been throwing the knuckle ball for about 6 years. Hopefully we can get the word out about Knuckleballer’s.

        • Running into any bias with the pitch? Also, I’ve seen some video of you throwing. How hard are you humming that thing? You are also getting a bit of recoil in your delivery which may cause some spin.

      • Hey Chris, Hi everyone,
        my name is Anselm and I throw the knuckleball here in Germany. I’m 28 and I’ve been playing baseball for something around 13 years now. My team is located in the Munich region, we don’t play professionally, since that’s not really possible here. But we do have league games almost every weekend.
        I’ve started throwing the…[Read more]
