Griffin was a manager in the minor leagues from 1935 to 1955, winning four league championships. While Griffin managed a Class D team in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, he signed future all-star player Andy Pafko. Pafko, who had never played baseball in high school, was signed while working on his father's nearby farm. Griffin died in an automobile accident in Gainesville, Georgia.
