Bryce O. Brittan was an all-around American hero. He was recipient of the Silver Scout Award. He was a 12-year war veteran of World War II and the Korean conflict and has also been a writer for CB newspaper. However, people fondly remember the great man with a passion for the little ones as the founder of Pee Wee Baseball in Superior, Wis. Britt Timmons, author of “Combat Support,” pays him tribute in his newly published book titled, Pee Wee League Baseball.
Timmons’ book is an astounding nonfiction work that traces the history of a baseball league for 8 to 12 year-olds in his home county in Wisconsin. The league was founded by his father in 1958. This filled a niche for over 30 long years and has been remarkably documented in newspapers. It took Timmons two years of library research and approval from the local newspaper to get it ready for publication.
The book also pays homage to Harold Peter Henry “Pee Wee” Reese, after whose honor the league was named. He played shortstop for the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1940 to 1957. He played in nearly 2200 games and had a life time batting average of .269. While with the team, the Dodgers won six National League Pennants. In 1959, he became one of the first TV baseball sports broadcasters. He was inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame in 1984.
Filled with black and white pictures, news clippings, charts and tables, Pee Wee League Baseball is truly Timmons’ labor of love. It does not only compile its history for its readers. Above all, it celebrates the life of two great men who have contributed to making baseball the most loved sport that it is today.
