Photograph caption dated July 31, 1956 reads "Biggest noise heard these days is the booming bat of big Steve Bilko, but the young man pictured here is having a lot to do with the Los Angeles Angels' recent command of the PCL baseball race. He is Johnny Briggs, promising young right-hander who has pitched three straight victories, the latest a full-distance win over Portland Sunday. Indications are he's fully recovered from an early-season arm operation."
