CINCINNATI (AP) -The Reds paid tribute to former player and broadcaster Joe Nuxhall by wearing special jerseys before their season opener Monday.
Coaches and players donned jerseys that had Nuxhall's No. 41 and his name on the back. All but starting pitcher Aaron Harang switched into their regular jerseys for the game.
Harang got permission from the commissioner's office to wear his Nuxhall jersey during the game, then donate it to the team's hall of fame.
Nuxhall was the youngest player in major league history at age 15 in 1944. He pitched for the Reds and later was a broadcaster. He died last November at age 79.
