In this episode, I talk to Kim Nuxhall who created the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League so that everyone with any challenge can play the game of baseball.
Kim Nuxhall, Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League, joins the podcast to tell the powerful story and mission behind his father's legacy projects. Kim's dad, Joe Nuxhall, was the youngest player to ever pitch in the MLB at the ripe age of 15. After his professional baseball career, Joe joined Marty Brennaman in the radio broadcast booth for the Cincinnati Reds, forming a dynamic 31-year duo that has gone unmatched to this day. Joe brought energy, honesty, and an unapologetic joy to the radio that the entire Cincinnati community embraced. After his passing in 2007, Kim continued to follow their hearts and vision by creating the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League in 2012. The Miracle League aims to revolutionize and set the standard for creating recreational and athletic opportunities for people with disabilities. With two rubber baseball fields, a unique putt putt course, and more, the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League aims to provide "every individual with every challenge every chance to play the game of baseball." Kim Nuxhall is living out his dad's legacy and is one of the most compassionate people I know. Listen to our conversation and see how the Miracle League is so much more than baseball. Thanks for listening and sharing with a friend.
