Better known as Pee Wee, the Little Colonel, and considered to be a big
help in Jackie Robinson being accepted in baseball. Arguably the best
athlete to ever come out of Louisville, KY.

Also a grad of my alma mater: duPont Manual in Louisville.

Great human being. His efforts on behalf of the less fortunate will
never be forgotten. Makes me proud to be a Louisvillian today.

Good-bye, Pee Wee, we will miss you...

Tom

Having seen Pee Wee Reese play at Ebbetts as a young lad while the
Dodgers were still
the heart of Brooklyn and not those LA La De Da poseurs who play in a
ravine all I can add is Amen Amen Amen!!!!!!!!!!!

Pee Wee and my father were friends.  I haven't heard my father this
bummed out in a long time.

It actually has me rather worried.  All the baseball peers that my
father worked with are dying off, and I think he's *really* getting
a sense of his own mortality that he didn't have before.
