NEW YORK (WFAN) — Mets right-hander R.A. Dickey made history on Wednesday evening when he became the first knuckleballer in major league history to win the Cy Young Award.
Upon hearing that he accomplished the feat and added to his magical 2012 season, the 38-year-old didn’t know what to do with himself.
“Believe it or not I was completely speechless,” Dickey told WFAN’s Mike Francesa on Thursday afternoon. “When I heard the head of the Baseball Writers’ Association (of America) say that the baseball writers have made history tonight, I knew that I had won, because I knew that there had never been a Cy Young Award winner who had been a full-time knuckleballer … It was just euphoric for a moment … It’s such a prestigious award, and it really meant a lot.”
