Phil Niekro Autograph SigningHall of Fame knuckleball pitcher Phil Niekro signed autographs at Newnan store’s grand opening on Wednesday, March 19. The event began at 10:00 a.m., but fans lined up in front of the store as early as 7:30 a.m. to get their hands on tickets to meet the Atlanta Braves legend.

Fans arrived with spotless baseballs, Phil Niekro baseball cards, Atlanta Braves hats, baseball bats, photos and even blank paper of him to sign, and event though there were only 250 tickets available, many fans just stuck around to hang out and tell stories about the times they watched him pitch.

Niekro spent two decades of his 24-year MLB career with the Braves and set an MLB record 121 career victories after the age of 40 in addition to being one of only ten pitchers to have 3,000 strikeouts and 300 wins during his pro career. Often referred to as “Knucksie” for his skill with the knuckleball pitch, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1997.
