  • Scout Dewey Griggs

    I am researching Dewey Griggs of Homer, NY who was a scout for both the Boston Braves and the Milwaukee Braves. His top signings were Hank Aaron, Johnny Logan, Wes Covington, Johnny Antonelli, and Bob Trowbridge. When I called the Atlanta Braves offices, Mr. Aaron's publicist advised me to contact the Milwaukee Braves office for info on Dewey Griggs as Atlanta wouldn't have it. I also wanted to ask Hank if he would share his thoughts about signing in 1952 when he was a shortstop with Indianapolis. She wasn't willing to contact Hank for me. I suppose I could get his home mailing address and send him a letter.

    Where in Milwaukee would Braves information be?
    "He's tougher than a railroad sandwich."
    "You'se Got The Eye Of An Eagle."
