Who is R. A. Dickey?

Robert Allen "R.A." Dickey is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball. He previously played for the Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners, Minnesota Twins and New York Mets.

After limited success in the majors as a conventional starting pitcher, he learned to throw a knuckleball. As of the 2012 season, Dickey is the only active player in the majors who uses the knuckleball as his primary pitch. In 2012, Dickey was selected to his first career All-Star Game, won the Sporting News Pitcher of the Year Award and became the first knuckleball pitcher to win the Cy Young Award.
