Joe Nuxhall Way?

Jane Prendergast reports from City Hall:

Cincinnati City Councilman David Crowley today asked city council to rename the portion of Main Street that includes the ballpark Joe Nuxhall Way.

The Reds general offices at Great American Ball Park are at 100 Main Street.

Crowley wants the change to occur by June 10, the day set aside by the Reds to honor Nuxhall, who was a Reds player and broadcaster for 64 years.

Nuxhall died in November at the age of 79. An exhibit honoring Nuxhall is at the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum.

No immediate response from other councilmembers about the idea.

thats a no brainer for a council person who wants to be re-elected. I will be watching this closely.

Considering Cranley's wildy unpopular and solitary stance on the streetcar, it makes sense that he is trying to sway back the popular vote with this carrot. Will it work? For most, probably; for me, its too late.

I thought his name was familiar, figures he would be promoting changing the name of something CARS use.

How bout the Joe Nuxhall Street Car System ;)

Ha! Good idea. That way they'd pass it for sure.
