Baseball Digest Daily found this gem, which shows a scouting report from Branch Rickey (during his short stint as a PBC executive in 1954) that touts a young Don Drysdale and urges the Pirates to sign him.
Of course, Drysdale signed with the Dodgers. Rickey hand writes, after the fact: "Signed with Brooklyn; Father is a bird dog for them".
I love this line from Rickey: "It is probable that this chap is worth whatever it takes except that Pittsburgh is in no position to make him a bonus player." Maybe Littlefield was following PBC tradition when he bypassed Wieters!
