New York Mets starting pitcher R.A. Dickey discussed his future with the Mets and his philanthropy in an interview with co-hosts Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell that aired live today, Nov. 27, 2012, on CBS THIS MORNING on the CBS Television Network (7:00 AM – 9:00 AM). Check out the interview below!

Below is an excerpt from the interview:

ROSE: Tell everybody what it is that a knuckleball does, before we figure out how you found it.

DICKEY: Well, if a conventional pitcher uses spin to manipulate the break of a ball, a knuckleballer is trained to take spin completely off so that the break is very chaotic and unpredictable. A good knuckleball has about zero to a half revolution from the time it leaves your hand until the time it gets to the plate.

ROSE: And that can be bad news for batters.

DICKEY: Yep. And if you throw a bad one, it's bad news for me.

O'DONNELL: Who taught you how to throw a knuckleball?

DICKEY: My grandfather, very early on, and just played with it as it came up. But I was always a hard thrower so I really didn't need it. As I got older, if I wanted to keep chasing the dream of being a big league player, I had to come up with a weapon I could use and this was my ticket.
