Like Tim Wakefield, Charlie Hough’s fortunes were reversed when he learned to throw a knuckleball in the minor leagues. The knuckler helped him last 25 seasons in the majors as a pitcher and four more as a pitching coach. A reliever for the beginning of his career and a starter for the rest of it, Hough became famous for his "dancing knuckler," which helped him onto the 1986 AL All-Star team, his only selection to the Midsummer Classic. Hough led all pitchers with 17 complete games in 1984 and ranks 82nd all-time in career wins with 216, tied with Wilbur Cooper and Curt Schilling. He also lost 216 career games and finished with a 3.75 ERA.
