Grady Edgebert Hatton Jr. (October 7, 1922–April 11, 2013) Between playing, managing, coaching, and scouting, Grady Hatton devoted over 40 years to the game of baseball. A star for the University of Texas Longhorns, Hatton attracted Major League notice while playing ball in the US Army Air Force. Signed by Cincinnati in 1946, he purchased a ranch in his home state of Texas with his signing bonus. A pretty good infielder, he played third base for the Reds for most of his career and was also a player-representative. He was an All-Star in 1952 and played for six different teams during his 12-year career. Hatton then managed in the minors, spent 15 years as manager and executive with the Houston Colt .45s/Astros organization, and followed that with a 16-year run as scout for the San Francisco Giants. A solid baseball man who was known for his sterling character, Hatton passed away in 2013 at the age of 90.
