Former VOLS pitcher is out to prove he is the one true Ricky Vaughan of majors

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on August 18, 2008

I know, I know I haven’t done much within the past three days. So sue me bitches. However Seattle Mariners knuckleballer and former University of Tennessee pitcher R.A. Dickey has done something. He tied a major league record by throwing four wild pitches in an inning yesterday against the Minnesota Twins. Dickey has thrown a challenge to Charlie Sheen AKA Ricky Vaughan of the movie Major League.

Mariners catcher Kenji Johjima (who the hell names their kid “Kenji”?) was charged with a passed ball on another errant pitch in the fifth. The Twins scored on two of Dickey’s wild pitches. Top that one Ricky!

“It was moving violently. If I could have thrown it for strikes, it would have been a real fun day I think,” Dickey said. “But I couldn’t throw it for strikes.”

Too bad one of those pitches didn’t hit Tim Tebow.

Dickey became the fifth major league pitcher to throw four wild pitches in an inning. Philadelphia’s Ryan Madson was the last to do it, in 2006.

Another knuckleballer, Hall of Famer Phil Niekro, is on the list. So is Hall of Famer Walter Johnson and current Marlins closer Kevin Gregg – who was with the Angels when he tied the record.

Word is R.A. learned the knuckleball from someone that goes by E. Ainge.
