When not writing, Dews serves in an advisory role as Atlanta Braves coach at home games and during spring training. He has been with the Atlanta Braves organization since 1974.

A native of Clinton, Iowa, Dews graduated from Edison High School. He was a standout basketball and baseball player at Georgia Tech and earned a degree in English in 1968 from West Georgia College.
