Robert Allen "R.A." Dickey is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball. He previously played for the Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners, Minnesota Twins and New York Mets. After limited success in the majors as a conventional starting pitcher, Dickey learned to throw a knuckleball. As of the 2015 season, he is one of two active players in the majors who use the knuckleball as a primary pitch. In 2012, Dickey was selected to his first All-Star Game, won the Sporting News Pitcher of the Year Award, and became the first knuckleball pitcher to win the Cy Young Award.
