A 1997 inductee into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Niekro recorded 3,342 strikeouts, 318 wins and an ERA of 3.35 during his career. He also pitched a no-hitter for the Braves in 1973. He was known as one of the rare knuckleball pitchers in the majors and was selected to five All-Star Games (1969, 1975, 1978, 1982, 1984.) Niekro additionally won five Gold Gloves for his defense in three straight seasons from 1978-1980 and again in 1982 and 1983.

In 1967, he went 11-9 with nine complete games while his ERA of 1.87 led MLB. He similarly led the league in wins twice, first in 1974 with 20. That season saw him pitch 302.1 innings to go along with 18 complete games, both stats that also led the majors. Niekro again led baseball in wins in 1979 at the age of 40 with 21. From 1977-1979, he led the league every year in complete games, batters faced and innings pitched. Niekro’s 121 victories earned after his 40th birthday is an MLB record. In 1980, Niekro won the Roberto Clemente Award, honoring his on-the-field prowess, strong sportsmanship and work in the community. His jersey #35 has been retired by Atlanta and he is a member of the Braves Hall of Fame.
