Speaking of knucklers, isn't that what Hoyt Wilhelm threw? If so, that means that 1968 White Sox team could bring a lefty/righty knuckler combination at you. Sounds like something Bowden would have tried.
You're correct. Wood and Wilhelm were teammates. I'm not sure it makes much difference to a hitter whether a knuckleballer pitches right or lefthanded though.
