FAIRFIELD, OH (February 1, 2024)—About 600 miles separate the Miracle League of Mercer County (NJ) and the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields in Greater Cincinnati. But an ambitious young broadcaster closed that gap through his incredible podcast.
Recently, Nuxhall Foundation Executive Director Tyler Bradshaw appeared on an episode of The Baseball Brain Podcast hosted by Harrison "The Ford" Mylowe and commissioner Dan Sczweck of the Miracle League of Mercer County. In the episode, the three discussed Joe Nuxhall's legacy, the Miracle Series traveling baseball program, and Bradshaw's inspiration for serving in his role.
The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields and the Miracle League of Mercer County were two of the participating team's in the 2023 Miracle Series hosted at The Ripken Experience in Pigeon Forge, TN.
Last week, Harrison and Dan also interviewed Eric Schmidt of Playground Equipment Services about his passion for helping special needs athletes. Eric and the PES team helped to restore and resurface the playing field for the Miracle League of Mercer County after the facility received extensive tornado damage.
The Nuxhall Foundation is the legacy foundation for former Major League Baseball pitcher and longtime Cincinnati Reds broadcaster, Joe Nuxhall. A central project of The Nuxhall Foundation is The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields—an entirely accessible baseball and recreational facility where every player with every challenge gets every chance to play. More than 250 players between ages 4 to 80 participate in programs at the Miracle League Fields.
