I remember Brett's left handed fastball in Little League at Bayland Park. Everyone on the team was afraid to hit against him because of his big league arm. Not sure how long he pursued his baseball career.
Sorry to see the news of his passing.

The fastball was Kim's.
Brett was the younger brother and a good guy.

Jimmy is correct, Brett was right-handed. Kim Griswold (brother) is a year older, and had the smoking left-handed fastball. I hadn't seen either of them for many years and was sad to see Brett had passed. We were really close friends in high school and to this day, Brett was one of the most kindest people I've ever known.

I did see Kim and his wife Cindy Shields at my son's baseball tournament about 12 or 13 years ago. It was in Pecan Grove area where they live. Kim still looked exactly the same and at the time, all was well. After looking at all who have passed, it looks like Brett has some good company where he now resides. Cheers amigo!

I'm glad you guys figured it out, yes Kim was the pitcher.

Brett and I first became friends at Neff, third grade. We hung out quite a bit, I stayed at their house prior to Christmas that year for a few days while my parents were out of town. I'll always remember their aluminum xmas tree with the rotataing color wheel, pretty cool at the time.

We always said hello the years following, not staying in touch too much. After graduating, we were Architect majors at U of H, started car pooling and renewing friendship. After the first year of college, went separate ways again, oh well.

Brett was a cool person, had a real nice Penton motorcycle in the day. Kim and Brett were pretty tight.

I was sorry to hear of his passing.
