Re: Sad day for Reds Fans- Joe has Rounded 3rd and headed home!Joe passed away overni
So sorry to hear of Joe's passing.
So many on here don't remember him as a player. I recall that he was a good pitcher in the 50's but really didn't gain full control of his talent until he returned to the Reds in 1962.
Also, whenever he was on the 'Star of the Game Show' with Waite Hoyt (or whoever) during those years you could see that he had the 'gift for gab' that would serve him so well as a broadcaster.
Joe was one of a kind. My prayers to the family.
