Doug Flutie to Get Chance to Pitch in Major League Baseball

Huh?  Who said we have no third acts in America?

[Doug Flutie will be remembered as a great quarterback, but as a knuckleballer with the Arizona Diamondbacks? The former NFL Pro-Bowl quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner from Boston College is going to get his shot.

MLB Network will be debuting a new program, “The Next Knuckler” on Feb. 13. The premise of the show is to have former Boston Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield teach a bunch of former college and NFL quarterbacks how to throw a knuckleball. The quarterback who shows the most promise as a pitcher will get an invitation from the Arizona Diamondbacks to try out for the team at spring training this season, according to Craig Calcaterra of NBC Sports.]
