Reds broadcaster Joe Nuxhall is among the nominees for the 2008 Ford C. Frick Award (for the second consecutive year, along with about a million other people). Redleg Nation wishes the Ol’ Lefthander the best of luck. This would be a wonderful honor, especially with the health problems Nuxie has been having lately.

For whatever reason, Thom Brennaman is nominated, as well. Thom’s an outstanding broadcaster, but he seems young to be on the ballot for such an award.

The final ballot for the Frick Award will contain 10 names; three of those names will be selected by fan voting. I urge everyone to go here to vote for Nuxhall (and Brennaman and former Red Alex Trevino) to make the final ballot.
