Player Biography
It takes a special weapon to pitch nearly a quarter of a century in the majors, and Phil Niekro’s was the knuckleball. The pitch helped “Knucksie” record 318 wins, 3,342 strikeouts and a 3.35 ERA during a 24-year career spent mostly with the Atlanta Braves. Niekro’s famed pitch bewildered batters: Rick Monday once said, “(The knuckleball) actually giggles at you as it goes by,” while Bobby Murcer recalled that “trying to hit him is like trying to eat Jell-O with chopsticks.” Bob Uecker joked that catching Niekro was rewarding, “I got to meet a lot of important people – they all sit behind home plate.”
