Host Bob Edwards speaks with Mark Reese, son of legendary Brooklyn Dodgers captain, Pee Wee Reese, about what came next for players after baseball. The Dodgers will always be remembered as the young men of the first integrated club who captured a hard-won World Series in 1955. But as they grew older, team members went on to face the challenges of raising children, of fighting cancer and of overcoming alcoholism. Mark Reese tells these stories in the documentary, Boys in Winter: The Toughest Season.
