City renames straight Joe Nuxhall Way

CINCINNATI (AP) - City Council in Cincinnati has found another
way to honor longtime Reds player and broadcaster Joe Nuxhall, who
died in November.
Signs will be put up on Main Street in front of Great American
Ball Park designating it Joe Nuxhall Way. Signs calling it Main
Street will stay, too, so out-of-town drivers won't be confused.
City and club officials wanted the name change in place before a
celebration June 10, the 64th anniversary of the first game Nuxhall
pitched for the Reds.
