I’d put the chances at the 50 year-old Jamie Moyer actually coming back as a knuckleballer at the closest thing to zero there is without actually being Jamie Moyer and knowing otherwise, but this story from Stan Hochman of the Philadelphia Daily News is fun and makes for good day dreams. Here’s what the co-author of Moyer’s book said:
“… he’s not retired. He did play around with a knuckleball this summer. Talked to Charlie Hough, to Tim Wakefield. He just loves the challenge of learning something new.”
Please let this happen. If only in some independent league were we can see some shaky video of it.
