Joseph Nuxhall

Born July 30th 1928 – Died November 15th 2007

From 1965 – 1975 the Cincinnati Reds' most famous left handed pitcher, Joseph Nuxhall, held his team's record for the most games pitched and to this day is still the record holder for a left hander. He was, in his day, also the youngest player to have taken part in a Major League game aged only 15 in 1944. After his retirement Nuxhall became a radio commentator for the Reds, a career that would last 40 years. Born in Hamilton, Ohio, Nuxhall signed his contract while still in his teens due to the fact that many of the players were involved in military service during the Second World War. He made the national All Star teams of 1955 and 1956 and earned the nickname "The Ol' Left Hander."

May his soul rest in peace.
