A lot of people are passing away these days....the freshman RB from Utah, Brodie Lee, AKA Luke Harper active professional wrestler. This is making 2020 one of the worst years on record.

RIP Phil

At the age of 48, Niekro was the oldest player in major league history to play regularly until Julio Franco played at age 49 in 2007. He set a major league record by playing 24 seasons in the major leagues without a World Series appearance

Another wild stat, last player and likely the last ever to win and lose 20 games in one season.
Went 21-20 in one season in the late seventies.
RIP.

I remember an umpire went out to the mound because he thought Niekro was doctoring the ball and asked him to empty his pocket and Phil tried to throw a nail file behind him went he emptied his back pocket.. no doubt the ump saw it.!! Funny stuff
