SHORTSTOP: Pee Wee Reese
Ned Colletti's pick for the best Dodgers shortstop in franchise history is none other than Pee Wee Reese! Reese had his breakout season in 1942, where he batted .255, had an OBP of .351, and led NL shortstops in putouts and assists. That year would mark his first of 10 consecutive All-Star Game appearances. Not only was he a great player, but he was also a strong supporter of Jackie Robinson and a respected U.S. Navy veteran.
Here in Dave Hobrecht's stunning piece, different eras collide as Bill Russell, Corey Seager, Pee Wee Reese, and Maury Wills kneel in front of the iconic Ebbets Field. The mix of nostalgic Dodger lore and future Dodger stardom make this a painting unlike anything you've ever seen before.
