Commentator Bill Littlefield remembers Pee Wee Reese, the Hall of Fame shortstop and captain of the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 40's and 50's, who died last Saturday at the age of 81. Although Reese was an eight-time All-Star who played during seven pennant-winning games and one World Series winner, he'll be most remembered for his courage.
