Two groups have recently contributed to the Pee Wee Reese exhibit, the du Pont Manual High School Alumni Association and Bailey Mazik, of the Louisville Slugger Museum. Alan Goulder (on the right) and Chris Hoehle (on the left) of the Manual Hall of Fame and Alumni Association contributed photographs of Pee Wee Reese. Bailey Mazik of the Louisville Slugger Museum contributed photos of Pee Wee from the Louisville Slugger archives. Pee Wee Reese was under contract with Louisville Slugger where he designed three bats. The Slugger Museum donated several rare photos of Pee Wee as well as one of his R3 bat designs.
The Meade County History Museum is indebted to The Louisville Slugger Museum and to the du Pont Manual High School Association for their contributions. Pee Wee played his high school ball at Manual where he was inducted into the Manual Hall of Fame. He was ill at the time and physically unable to attend the award luncheon, but will forever be remembered not only in Meade County, but also on the du Pont Manual Alumni Hall of Fame wall.
