Pee Wee Reese was a former professional baseball player who became part of two teams in the Major League Baseball. He was born as Harold Henry Reese and grew up in Maede County, Kentucky. He was a product of DuPont Manual High School where he played high school baseball.
He became part of the Louisville Colonels of the American Association and showed off his amazing baseball skills which made him a top prospect for the minor leagues. He was first acquired by the Boston Red Sox but he never played for the team and was soon traded to the Brooklyn Dodgers where he became a regular shortstop. In his first season in the Major League Baseball, he appeared in 84 games and reviews say he finally made a great impact on the majors in the 1942 season. That year, he was included in the All-Star team and made another mark in the 1049 season when he recorded the highest number of runs scored with 132. He was named as the team captain of the Dodgers in 1950. The next year, he logged his career high RBIs with 84 and recorded the highest number of stolen bases in the National League with 30. His first and only World Series championship came in the 1955 season. After his professional baseball career, he went to broadcasting and worked for the CBS Network.
