Happy birthday Phil Niekro!

Sending out NoNoHitters birthday wishes to Phil Niekro, who tossed a no-hitter for the Atlanta Braves 42 seasons earlier.

Niekro, now 76, no-hit the San Diego Padres on Sunday, August 5, 1973 at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium for a 9-0 victory. The knuckleballer struck out four and walked three.
