Win VIP Seat and Autographed Movie Poster for the Film KNUCKLEBALL ! at The Tribeca Film Festival

<

 

 

One of the great events in New York City is the Tribeca Film Festival and this year is no exception, in fact there will be a film shown at the festival that is perfect for us baseball and Mets fans. The film Knuckleball! will be shown this Saturday at 8:15 PM  at the Tribeca Drive-In at The World Financial Center Plaza, which is located at West Street between Vesey and Liberty Streets.

He is a synopsis of the film Knuckleball! and a rundown of the festivities for the evening:

The baseball documentary Knuckleball! will be premiering for free to the public on April 21st as a part of the Tribeca Drive-in at the Tribeca Film Festival.  This classic sports story recounts the 2011 journey of the last professional knuckleball pitchers: Tim Wakefield, a 17-year Red Sox veteran, and Mets up-and-comer R.A. Dickey. Together with just four other living knuckleballers, they shine a light on their remarkable brotherhood and the shared pursuit of honor and craftsmanship.

The Tribeca Drive-in will open at 6:00 pm and include live music, giveaways, baseball trivia contests and pitching clinics with pro knuckleballers R.A. Dickey; Tim Wakefield, formerly of the Boston Red Sox; Charlie Hough, formerly of the Dodgers and Rangers; and former New York Yankee Jim Bouton.  The world premiere of Knuckleball! will follow at 8:15 pm . 

As you can see there is a lot to entice you to come out for the premiere, live music and giveaways would be enough I’m sure, but the chance to meet R.A. Dickey and his fellow knuckleballers, Tim Wakefield and Charlie Hough (if you’ve read Dickey’s book “Wherever I Wind Up” -published by Blue Rider Press-you know how influential Wakefield and Hough were in helping R.A. turn himself into the solid starting knuckleball pitcher he is today) and free admission? Are ya’ kidding? But wait there’s more.

I am offering one lucky Eddie Kranepool Society reader, the chance to score a seat in the VIP Section of the Tribeca Drive-In to view Knuckleball!, and also receive a poster from the movie autographed by Dickey, Wakefield, Hough and Bouton.

In order to win this prize package, you need to be the first reader to e-mail me (please put Knuckleball ! Movie in the subject line please)  at sinymets@aol.com with the correct answer to this trivia question:

In 2006, R.A. Dickey made one start for the Texas Rangers. Not only did Dickey lose the game he also tied a modern day MLB record. What was that record?

First correct answer via e-mail wins the seat and the autograph poster. Good Luck.
