And kinda sorta related is the fact that Phil Niekro had a place in Atlanta called the Knuckler Lounge!


I think this may've already been mentioned on the Big Hair Plastic Grass FB page and if so, sorry to be repetitive.


I have seen this before, Gregg, but had completely forgotten about it. Thanks for the reminder of Knucksie's drinking establishment!

This guy has always managed to be awesome in the field. Whenever he's around, fans couldn't help but hold their breath in his every move.

I remember Joe Pepitone's Thing quite well. My Father, who worked for Coca-Cola at the time set up a account for Coke in the lounge

I spoke to Joe Pepitone in a bar in merrick, long island called "the apartment".Joe was a nice, humble and friendly guy and allot of fun.I knew who he was and just spoke with him like a regular guy.
Joe did not tell anyone he played for the yankees in the bar and he seemed to have a good time making new friends in the bar.


Well I was going thru some mini bats, since I moved and came across a Hillerich & bradsby mini bat of him.

On the barrel it has his name, I'll try to replicate.
