This story of a few good men follows Tim Wakefield and Mets pitcher RA Dickey through the 2011 Major League baseball season as they face struggles unique to the knuckleballer alone. Though scoffed at by peers, discouraged by managers, and overlooked by scouts, these men personify the act of defying conventional wisdom. The knuckler is the everyman of baseball, and in them we see the best versions of ourselves, competing in spite of their failures.
