Player Biography

Harold “Pee Wee” Reese captained the dominant Brooklyn Dodgers teams of the 1950s, as a symbol of strength and unity – both on and off the field. An outstanding defensive player, Reese led the National League in putouts four times, double plays twice, fielding percentage and assists once each, while forming one of baseball’s top double-play combinations with Jackie Robinson. Their relationship drew national attention during Robinson’s 1947 barrier-breaking season when Reese offered public support of baseball’s first African-American teammate.

In 1947, Jackie Robinson broke the major leagues’ unwritten color barrier, becoming the first black player in the 20th century. Teammate and Hall of Famer Duke Snider called him “the greatest competitor I’ve ever seen.” Robinson was selected by Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey not only for the skills he brought to the field, but also those he possessed off it. A man of great character, Robinson lettered in four sports at UCLA before becoming an officer in the U.S. Army during World War II. In 1997, Robinson was honored posthumously when Major League Baseball universally retired his uniform number, 42.
