    Nuxhall Fans Seek To Honor Ill Broadcaster - Vote Joe & Vote Often

    Nuxhall Fans Seek To Honor Ill Broadcaster

    POSTED: 4:21 pm EST November 13, 2007
    UPDATED: 6:16 pm EST November 13, 2007

    FAIRFIELD, Ohio -- As Cincinnati Reds broadcaster Joe Nuxhall recovers from pneumonia at a Fairfield hospital, some of his fans hope to boost his spirits.

    Butler County commissioner Greg Jolivette joined a group Tuesday that kicked off their campaign to enshrine Nuxhall in Baseball’s Hall of Fame.

    “So we can have the joy and satisfaction of seeing the ‘Ol’ Left-Hander’ round third and head for the Hall of Fame,” Jolivette said.

    Supporters hope Nuxhall fans will register their support for granting Nuxhall baseball’s highest broadcast honor, the Ford C. Fricke Award, by voting once per day through the end of the month at http://hofjoe.com/.

    Jolivette said the Hamilton native has met the criteria for longevity and continuity with the club, and he said the broadcaster is immensely popular with Reds fans.

    Nuxhall’s longtime broadcast partner, Marty Brenneman, was honored in 2000 with the Fricke award, presented annually to a broadcaster "for major contributions to the game of baseball.”

    The former Reds pitcher, the youngest player in Major League history when he made his debut at age 15, was admitted Monday to Mercy Fairfield Hospital after he reported difficulty in breathing.

    “He had a hard time breathing and here they find out it's pneumonia,” said his brother, Bob Nuxhall.

    The 79-year-old has been undergoing treatment for a fourth bout of cancer after he noticed a knot at the base of his rib cage in August, but his brother said Nuxhall’s spirits remain high.

    “Whether it was baseball, football (or) I don't care if it was pool, he's a competitor in every sense of the word,” Bob Nuxhall said.

    I'm doing my part!
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    God Bless Joe Nuxhall.

    There is a little bit of Joe in all Baseball Fans and a whole lot of Joe in all Reds Fans.





    That's A Good Thing.

    Here's the link for the HOF - the voting box is down on the lower right

    http://web.baseballhalloffame.org/index.jsp

    You can only vote once every 24 hours. Maybe we can continue to bump this post up for the week (or maybe sticky it, if that's deemed appropriate).

    A sticky would be good for this. I have voted a few times and I just need a reminder to do it every day.

    I just voted this morning.

    If I remember to see this thread for a few days, then I can quickly hop on and vote again each morning.

    Mods, I agree - can we sticky this? Til the end of November? Just as a reminder to those of us with PGA (pre geriatric alzheimers)? I voted and would like to be reminded every day, too. Thanks for considering.

    Cincinnati is really really pushing this. It's all over the radio and television too.

    If anyone's worried about spending the time filling in the information form day after day, the site remembers your information when you go back to vote again. It just takes a second or two to vote.

    Nuxhall's the last link to when I first started following the Reds, and I hope to remember to vote daily. It felt good when I heard his voice last season. 1972 came back to me in waves.
