A Baseball Legend has Died

Before the time of steroid controversy, and corked bats, there were players that really cared about the game. One of them, a legend has died.
Joe Nuxhall, the youngest player to play the game in the modern era died last night. He was 79. He was affiliated with the Reds organization in one way or another for over 60 years. A good Summer day for me was listening to Marty & Joe calling a Reds game. My Summers will not be the same ever again.

Here is a link to some information about Joe Nuxhall.

Also, please vote for Joe to get into the Baseball Hall of Fame. He is eligible for the Ford C. Frick award for broadcasters. He was in the broadcats booth for the Reds since 1967.

Very sad. I can't believe his first action as a player was at age 15 with the Reds.

Back when players were loyal to the team and the team was loyal to players.
