Re: Joe Nuxhall Passes Away
A few years back I met him in a hotel lobby in Pitt. It was the last year that he did road games. He was hardly getting around, he signed a baseball for me, but had to stop and lean up against a pillar. It seemed like he was 7 feet tall, and had huge hands. To me he seemed like a Herman Munster type. Larger than life, but a kind gentle type inside.
He was very friendly to my wife and I, and I guarantee there are 1,000 more stories like mine.
