Jared Fernandez- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jfk5GV62Hs
In my opinion out of these three videos that are here, I think Fernandez has the most movement and the best knuckler. Tim’s just seem to have no spin but are straight probably with a little wobble, although I have seen some monsterous ones from him this video shows what he normally throws. And finally Charlie Hough, HOF’er, I can’t knock his, they seemed to have the most velocity and with that being said, I think he got the most movement his velocity would allow.
I just thought it was interesting. I myself throw a knuckleball around 50mph (depends) and mine is not at the level of any of these guys but I do have a good highschool knuckler that usually looks like a slow curveball break down and away, every now and then any knuckleballer including myself will get that freak knuckler that moves 2 or more feet, which I have had a quite a few over the past 6 years of throwing it, it’s just being able to throw that freak knuckle consistantly that determines what level you are at.
It’d be nice to hear some stories or anything on the knuckleball from people who throw it or just people who have seen others, anything!
