Timothy Stephen "Tim" Wakefield (born August 2, 1966) is a knuckleball-throwing right-handed Major League Baseball pitcher. Wakefield was born in Melbourne, Florida.

Wakefield started his major league career with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1992. He signed as a free agent for the Boston Red Sox in 1995. He won 16 games in his first year with Boston and helped them win a division title. His longevity and consistency have helped him quietly become one of the top pitchers in Red Sox history.
