"...milk, no less was responsible for (Johnny) Logan's success in baseball. Ask a rival manager such as Phil Cavarretta of the Cubs what makes Johnny such an outstanding shortstop. And the answer is sure to come back: 'Look at his hands. Notice how strong and quick they are.' That's what caught the attention of Braves scout Dewey Griggs, who watched Johnny play one day in his native Endicott, N.Y. 'Where'd you get those hands?' Griggs asked the youngster. 'I've done quite a bit of milking', was the quick retort." - Author Tom Meany in Milwaukee's Miracle Braves (Grosset & Dunlap Publishers, 1956, Page 65)
