Joe Posnanski posted a essay on the knuckleball on his blog and it got me to think about Jimmy Flores, who pitched at Glen Lake when I was there. He was a year behind me. I cant' remember if Jimmy used that knuckleball in a game but he used to throw while we played catch. He had a good knuckleball. Catching it was tough. One time he threw it and, I swear, I had my glow near my belt and the ball hit me on the foot.
