Why did Wes Shepard nominate Joe Nuxhall for the HOM?

I grew up listening to Joe Nuxhall calling Cincinnati Reds games. He was half the reason I prefer to listen to games instead of watching on television. His record is unbreakable. It will likely stand until the apocalypse is over. Youngest player to pitch in a major league game, 15 years old during WWII in 1944. He went the distance.
