When Jackie Robinson began playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, he received a cold reception from both the other players and the&nbspbaseball fans. Instead of cheers, he got boos. But&nbspone man, Pee Wee Reese, stood apart from the rest. And one day in Cincinnati,&nbspPee Wee&nbspshowed the world what it means to be a true teammate and friend.&nbspThis version of the story, as told to the author by Rex Barney, pitcher for the Dodgers that day, has been inspiring baseball fans for nearly thirty years. And now we've&nbspupdated the cover and added an introduction by the author,&nbspinsuring&nbspfans of every age&nbspwill continue to experience and enjoy this important event.
