The baseball documentary 'Knucklehead' will make its debut on Saturday April 21st. 'Knucklehead' "recounts the trials and triumphs of two of the best known knuckleball pitchers in the MLB: Tim Wakefield, a Red Sox veteran who recently announced his retirement after 19 years, and R.A. Dickey, an up-and-comer with the Mets looking to make a name for himself."
Each evening there will be fun activities to go along with every screening including treasure hunts and pitching clinics with top Major League baseball pitchers including R.A. Dickey of the New York Mets.
Doors will open at 6:00 p.m with live music starting at 7:00. Each screening will begin around 8:15.
