Knuckler: My Life with Baseball's Most Confounding Pitch I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Tim Wakefield and have been following his career since he debuted as a pitcher with the Pirates on July 31, 1992 under the wing of then Pirates manager Jim Leyland The book was delivered quickly and I set out to read it as soon as it arrived I couldn t put it down until I was finished with it If you love the game of baseball, then this is a must read, and a must have, for your collection Even for Red Sox fans who love Tim Wakefield, this book is a disappointment Quickly it becomes clear that Tony Massarotti wrote the book since Tim Wakefield is discussed in the third person for the whole read you have to wonder why Wake is given any credit on the book s cover as a co author Beyond that, the book carefully skirts any discussion of what Red Sox fans would be most interested in Manny, Schilling, steroids, and any insightful analysis on the team, it s front office and their business model. This book gives a great insight into one of the best pitchers of the Red Sox, shows personal ups and downs and makes me appreciate the great cotribution he has made to the Red Sox I have enjoyed reading this book very much and would recommend it to any Red Sox fan. A well written inside story of getting the breaks to make the big leagues and then the willingness to give up individual achievement for the good of the team A must for every Red Sox fan, baseball fan, knuckleball fan and anyone who really appreciates the rare good guy in sports I ve already purchased extras for Holiday gifts for my baseball friends.
