Wiki

Robert Allen "R. A." Dickey (born October 29, 1974 in Nashville, Tennessee) is a right-handed Major League Baseball pitcher for the New York Mets. He was previously with the Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners, Minnesota Twins and Milwaukee Brewers organizations. After having limited success in the majors as a conventional starting pitcher, Dickey has since made the transition to becoming a knuckleball pitcher. He has the notable distinction of being one of only two knuckleballers currently active, the other being Tim Wakefield of the Boston Red Sox.

Dickey majored in English literature at the University of Tennessee, where he had a 3.35 GPA and was named Academic All-American. He was also named Academic All-Southeastern Conference.

Dickey was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the first round (18th overall) of the 1996 Major League Baseball Draft. After being drafted by the Rangers, Dickey was initially offered a signing bonus of $810,000, before a Rangers team physician saw Dickey's arm hanging oddly in a picture. The Rangers subsequently did further evaluation of Dickey, leading to the discovery of a missing ulnar collateral ligament, and reduced their offer to $75,000. Dickey has been quoted as saying "Doctors look at me and say I shouldn’t be able to turn a doorknob without feeling pain," making his ability to pitch somewhat remarkable.
