Re: Sad day for Reds Fans- Joe has Rounded 3rd and headed home!Joe passed away overni
Whenever I heard his voice I was transported to the back porch of our house when I was a kid. I can see it now- the red transistor radio, my dad's bottle of Burger, and I can hear him still, "the wind and the pitch....swing anna miss."
Nuxhall provided a measure of continuity for Reds fans. My dad had Hoyt and we listened to Marty and Joe together. That's a special thing about those long time radio guys, being more a part of the team they cover than the players and managers.
I'll miss you Joe. A little piece of me is lost now that you're gone.
Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.
