Thought Tim Wakefield's retirement meant the end of the knuckleball? Think again.

Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey tossed back-to-back one-hitters in the past week to improve his 2012 record to 11-1. Dickey has not allowed an earned run in his last 42.2 innings and his 2.00 ERA is tied for the league lead. As the halfway point in the MLB season nears, Dickey is an early favorite for the NL Cy Young award and is the latest in the long line of knuckleball specialists.

In 1908, the New York Press credited Lew "Hicks" Moren as the knuckleball's inventor. After two games in two seasons with the Pirates from 1903-1904, Moren developed the pitch while in the minors from 1905-1906. When Moren returned to the major leagues in 1907 with the Phillies, he surprised opponents with his knuckleball. In four seasons with the Phillies, Moren posted a 2.95 ERA, but minimal run support led to a 48-56 record during that time.

Here is his MLB legacy of notable knuckleballers:
