The Reds had to be licking their chops at having a 21 year old Gary Nolan go 14-8 that year. No doubt Nolan had a very nice career but his career ended up being a far cry from what people were anticipating early on.

Bob Uecker was the personal catcher for the knuckleballer Phil Niekro. Ueck committed his 27th passed ball of the season in that game.

Here's more on Uecker & Niekro.

Bob Uecker came over to the Braves from the Phillies and made his first appearance with the Atlanta on June 9, 1967. That was about the same time that Phil Niekro was pulled out of the bullpen and installed into the starting rotation. Uecker would wind up catching 16 of Niekro's 20 starts that season. Uecker started out catching any and everybody. He started 23 games as the Braves catcher between June 9 and July 4. In that big load of work was his assignment as the starting catcher in BOTH games of THREE doubleheaders played on June 16, 22, and 24.

Uecker caught Niekro on July 4th and committed his 7th and 8th passed ball as a Brave. He was hitting .101 (8-for-79) as an Atlanta Brave after that game on July 4. With his weak bat being a major problem, he lost his everyday starting job and didn't start another game until July 16. Ueck committed 17 passed balls in games from July 16 thru Sept 19. All of those 17 came with Niekro pitching. Of the 27 passed balls on the season, 2 came while with Philadelphia, 2 came while catching Atlanta's Bob Bruce and Denny LeMaster, and 23 came while catching Phil 'Knucksie' Niekro. Atlanta released Uecker after the season concluded. His days as a major leaguer were over.

I never knew that Uecker was Niekro's personal catcher. Thanks to Linedriver and Big Klu for that info. :thumbup: Sounds as though he still had a hard time with Niekro's knuckler and he decided go with another catcher the next season. FWIW Niekro had the best knuckleball I have ever seen. When it was really "knuckling" no one could hit or catch it. The last game the 76 Reds lost was to Niekro and his knuckler. He no hit them for 8 1/3 innings before Geronimo doubled down the left field line. He often said that was one of his best knucklers he had that day. I was at that game and now wish he had got that no hitter since you don't witness those very often in person.
