The Ol’ Left-Hander Says Goodbye

null

While I know that any baseball news on this site garners groans and boos, I think it’s worth noting that a true classic has passed.

Joe Nuxhall, the youngest player ever to play in a Major League Baseball game, longtime Reds announcing partner to Marty Brennaman, and beloved Cincinnati icon, passed away last night from lymphoma at the age of 79.

Whether you love or hate baseball, Nuxy was one of the most loved individuals in both Cincinnati sports and the city itself, and our thoughts are with his family and friends today as he, to use his own words, rounds third and heads for home. He will, most definitely, be missed and remembered.
