Dick Usher portrays the legendary Pee Wee Reese who played professional baseball for the Brooklyn Dodgers. An eight-time All-Star, Reese was notably involved during the attempted 1947 petition of Dodger players threatening to boycott if Jackie Robinson joined the team. Reese refused to sign, and the petition disappeared. Reese also is known for quieting an unruly and racially insulting crowd by walking across the diamond and putting his arm around Robinson’s shoulders.
