"I've been working with Kim and Bonnie for years. I'm here because of the legacy of Joe Nuxhall. This is my second year playing in the tourney. I haven't hit a ball since last year! I used to play all the time. Last year at the All-Star Game, they did the "franchise four" for the Reds and all the other teams, and Nux wasn't one of them. I'm sorry, you can't do that without Joe Nuxhall. Joe Nuxhall should be in the National Baseball Hall of Fame."
