Joe Nuxhall is again one of the 10 finalists for the Ford C Frick Award. Joe earned one of the three fan-nominated spots for the 3rd consecutive season.
Voters are asked to base their selections on the following criteria: longevity, continuity with a club, honors — including coverage of the World Series and All-Star Game — and popularity with fans.
Of the ten finalists, Joe has the second longest career (second to Billy Berroa), the longest tenure with one club, and been fan-nominated in each of the past three Decembers. Prior to this year’s facebook-only vote, Joe had received the most fan votes in 2007 and 2008. And this year’s nomination process received very little attention in traditional Cincinnati media outlets.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote in December! Hopefully this will be Joe’s year!
