Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg Direct Knuckleball

Who says women can't direct sports movies?  Stern and Sundberg who directed the amazing documentary on Joan Rivers, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work have set their sights now on the world of baseball and the maligned pitchers who are known as knuckleballers.  They get these guys to open up and it's a very interesting look at baseball from a different perspective.
