5.9.16 Retired Numbers Pin Series - Pee Wee Reese presented by 76It looked like the Dodgers and Scott Kazmir might be buried early by the Mets, but two assists in the third inning by left fielder Kiké Hernandez kept New York’s lead to three after three. Trayce Thompson’s 340-foot homer to right field in the fourth cut the deficit to a single run, but the Dodgers drew no closer and, after an unearned run in the sixth, fell to the Mets, 4-2.

Vin Scully told the story tonight of Pee Wee Reese speaking to Jackie Robinson after Bobby Thomson’s “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” in 1951. “There’s one thing that I’ll never understand,” Reese said. “That this game hasn’t driven me crazy.”

The Vin Scully story kinda explains what has happened to him after all these years in baseball, There’s no other reason to explain his ineptness, the game has driven him crazy

Wow.

Ha ha, I feel the same way Reese did.
