Mike Brito, a Dodgers' scout for 45 years, passed away on July 7, 2022 at age 87.
Don't know the name? Well you no doubt saw him back in the day if you've ever watched a Dodgers' game on TV. He's the guy who always had a radar gun, Panama hat, and big cigar behind the backstop. I was never a Dodgers' fan, but I saw them many times on the Game of the Week.
Brito was the Dodgers' top scout in Mexico. He signed Fernando Valenzuela and over 30 others.
I saw this on Twitter: “Name me another scout you recognize. Name me the second-most famous scout in baseball. You can’t.”
