R.A. Dickey will be at the command of your remote control starting Sept. 18, when the film "Knuckleball!" is released on all digital and video on demand platforms nationwide.

"Knuckleball!" gets its theatrical release at the IFC Center in New York on Sept. 19. Dickey will be a part of some question and answer sessions during the opening weekend.

The film chronicles the subculture that has sprung up around the fluttering pitch, and the hurlers who have--somewhat--mastered it: Dickey, Phil Niekro, Charlie Hough, Wilbur Wood, Jim Bouton and Tom Candiotti.

Check out some clips from the film (the screen may appear black at first, but just mouse over it for the controls):
