In "Don't Blame the Knuckleballer! Baseball Legends, Myths, and Stories," K.P. Wee looks at more than 30 obscure and forgotten tales told by ballplayers, coaches, and broadcasters throughout baseball history - and repeated by historians and bloggers - while mixing in a knuckleballing theme. For each tale, Wee asks, "Did this really happen?" or "Did they blame the right person?" Among the tales:* Did Joe Niekro really strike out the first five batters of a game in the very first inning? * Did Phil Niekro really make Floyd Robinson silly on a strikeout?* Did "Sunday Teddy" Lyons really pitch only on Sundays?* How did Tom Candiotti "botch" the Jeff Kent fantasy baseball story?* Did Pedro Martinez actually forget the details of his first big-league start and blame the wrong guy?* Did you know that Ted Williams had to face a knuckleballer on the next-to-last day of his historic 1941 season?* Was Mark Grace really on deck when Glenallen Hill hit his mammoth home run at Wrigley?
