    Reds pitcher and broadcaster Joe Nuxhall was still 15 years old on June 10, 1944, when he became the youngest player to ever take part in a major league game.CINCINNATI -- Former Cincinnati Reds pitcher and broadcaster Joe Nuxhall has been hospitalized in Florida for tests for a recurrence of lymphoma, his son said Friday.

    The 78-year-old Nuxhall was in Sarasota for the start of the team's spring training when he went to Sarasota Memorial Hospital on Wednesday for previously scheduled tests, son Kim Nuxhall said.

    That's when doctors found the recurrence of lymphoma, first detected in September 2003.

    "He is pretty fortunate," Kim Nuxhall said. ``He is doing OK, all things considered.''

    Joe Nuxhall became the youngest player in major league history in June 1944 when, at 15 years, 10 months and 11 days, he pitched two-thirds of an inning for the Cincinnati Reds in an 18-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.

    Nuxhall returned to the big leagues in 1952 and pitched 16 seasons, mostly with the Reds. In 526 games he went 135-117 with a 3.90 ERA. A two-time All-Star, he led the NL with five shutouts in 1955.

    Nuxhall's career with the Reds on the field and in the broadcast booth spanned 60 years.

    My Dad passed away from lymphoma back in '97. Some forms are treatable and can be put into remission.

    My heart and prayers go out to the Nuxhall family at this time.
