Left-handed pitcher, 1944, 1952-1960, 1962-1966. Inducted 1968.
Became the youngest to play in a Major League game when he made his Reds debut at age 15. After finishing high school and a stint in the minor leagues, he returned to the team to restart a successful career. He made two All-Star games, once led the league in shutouts, and for a short time was the Reds’ all-time leader in games pitched. Nuxhall was also known for his hitting: his 13 home runs as a Reds pitcher are a team record. After his retirement, “the old Lefthander” spent 37 seasons as the voice of the Reds on the radio, and continued to broadcast games part-time until his death in 2007.
