OTD June 10 - Joe Nuxhall

Baseball Digest

1944: Joe Nuxhall of the Cincinnati Reds becomes the youngest player ever in a major-league baseball game, pitching two-thirds of an inning at the age of 15 years and 316 days. Nuxhall, who was called upon for that one game due to player shortages during World War II, would eventually find his way back to the Reds in 1952 and play 15 more MLB seasons.
