Robert Alan "R.A." Dickey is the current Cy Young Award Winner with the New York Mets. He previously played for the Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners, and Minnesota Twins. With the retirement of Tim Wakefield, R.A. is now the only active player in the majors who uses the knuckleball as his primary pitch. R.A. has had a great year in 2012 for the Mets. He threw two consecutive one-hitters on June 13 and June 18, 2012. The last time a pitcher threw two consecutive one-hitters was in 1988 in the AL and 1944 in the NL. During the June 18th one-hitter, he also set a career high in strikeouts with 13. As of June 22, 2012, R.A. also made records as second among Mets pitchers all-time with 42 2⁄3 consecutive innings pitched without giving up an earned run. In 1996, R.A. competed in the Atlanta Summer Olympics with fellow MLB greats Troy Glaus and Travis Lee.
