In case you haven’t heard, The Ol’ Lefthander, Joe Nuxhall, has been hospitalized in Florida:
Reds broadcasting legend and former pitcher Joe Nuxhall has been hospitalized again to battle an apparent return of lymphoma.
Nuxhall, who was in town for Reds Spring Training, was admitted earlier this week to Sarasota Memorial Hospital, complaining he had difficulty breathing. He is expected to undergo more tests in the coming days.
Marty Brennaman, the 78-year-old Nuxhall’s longtime broadcast partner, spent 90 minutes visiting “The Ol’ Lefthander” at the hospital on Friday.
“He has the same amazing outlook about this setback as he’s had about every one of them,” Brennaman said. “He doesn’t leave open any possibility that he won’t beat it, again.”
Last summer, Nuxhall was hospitalized in Ohio with cancerous lymphoma on his tonsils and also battled through double pneumonia.
Best of luck to Nuxie.
