The Ol' Lefthander, rounding third and heading for home....
Joseph Henry Nuxhall
July 30, 1928 - November 15, 2007
As a child in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky, I grew up listening to Marty and Joe.
Here is a part of the only piece of writing I have that references Joe Nuxhall.
Go on Joe, "Get up! Get up! Get outta here!".
Depression Era (Ref. Robert Herrick)
South, out of Zanesville
Down Route 13
What I do Saturday,
Sneaking beer from the cooler
Hot stove league on the radio
Marty and it used to be Joe
I don’t collect myself
and don’t know much
But find what I can
and take it home to my Sweetie
