Legendary Boston Red Sox knuckleballer, Tim Wakefield, is hanging up his cleats and retiring after 19 years in the major leagues, 17 of them with the Boston Red Sox.
The 45- year-old Wakefield had great health throughout most of his lengthy career, which was longer than most Major League pitchers because his signature pitch was less strenuous on his arm.
Wakefield’s retirement leaves only one other current knuckleball pitcher in major league baseball, R.A. Dickey, who pitches for the National League’s New York Mets.
