With a hat tip to Mike Fast, here is a terrific interview with one of our newest Astros, lefty knuckleballer Blaine Sims.
I’ve always grown up different, and I wanted to be different. I’m already left handed, and guys already think you’re out there anyway. Well then you start throwing a knuckleball, and people are like ‘my God, what is this.’It's a great read and goes into the time he spent working with Phil Niekro in developing his knuckleball. Well worth your time.
