  Tom Candiotti - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Thomas Caesar Candiotti (born August 31, 1957 in Walnut Creek, California) is a former right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball who was known for his knuckleball.
In 2005, his first year of eligibility, Candiotti received less than 5% of the vote (he received 2 votes; the threshold was 26) from the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame, thus becoming ineligible to appear on future BBWAA ballots.
However, he may eventually be considered for induction into the Hall by the Veterans Committee once 20 years have passed from his date of retirement (therefore, in the year 2020), in accordance with current Hall of Fame rules (enacted in 2001).

Candiotti (7-13) was tempted to try to finish the game with a fastball, but decided to stick with his knuckler because he knew Strawberry was struggling with that pitch.

 MAKING BETTER USE OF THE COMMISH'S EXEMPTIONS
It was nice to have Tom "Cotton" Candiotti in the ESPN broadcast booth at the PBA GEICO Open from Arizona on Sunday.
Critics will say Candiotti had no chance of being competitive in the tournament, so the exemption should have gone to a more worthy bowler --perhaps one of the region's young guns, hungry for a shot to show his stuff at a PBA Tour stop.
This way, a public relations move (such as Candiotti or a woman or underage prodigy or senior legend) could be made, and at the same time, worthy bowlers from the Regional program would get deserved berths in select events.

Once known for his wicked knuckleball, Tom Candiotti is now known for his ''best of the best'' card collection.
For serious card collectors, however, Candiotti's famous pitch is secondary to one of the former big leaguer's other abilities -- having the ability (both financially and commitment-wise) to compile one of the finest, PSA-graded card collections known to exist.
Oh, and by the way - just in case you were thinking about giving Tom a run in compiling a collection like this, you should probably know that just these 25 cards alone are valued at somewhere between $4 million and $7.15 million dollars!
