Playing for the Indians Forty-seven-year old Phil Niekro "steals" the first base of his career. With the Tribe at bat in the 8th inning behind 5-2 against Seattle there is a runner on 1B when Niekro wearing a red bandanna over his face lumbers out of the Cleveland dugout. He rambles towards 2B diving in headfirst and ump Vic Voltaggio signals safe. To the delight of the fans "Knucks" rips the bag out of the ground and triumphantly returns to the dugout with his first steal.
