Shortstop: Pee Wee Reese, 61.2 fWAR

Whenever one thinks of "shortstop" and "Dodgers," Pee Wee Reese is almost 100% going to be the first name to come to mind, and rightfully so. His entire 16-year career was on the Dodgers and he very easily made his way into the Hall of Fame like so many before him on this list.

In 2,166 career games, Reese was never a league leader in any major offensive category (hits, home runs, RBI, etc.), but he was as consistent a player as you could find and was always a lock to get on base, steal bases, score runs, and play incredible defense at short.

After missing three straight seasons due to his time in the military, it's a wonder how much Reese could've padded his stats if he didn't miss those games. He ended his career with 2,170 hits and was an All-Star Game participant a whopping 10 times along the way. With only 126 career home runs, he was never one of the more prolific power hitters in the game, but his 232 steals, 80 triples and 1,338 runs scored tell much more of a story of his value to the club.

Reese was ultimately elected to the Hall of Fame in 1984 thanks to the Veterans Committee. He passed away in 1999 at the age of 81, but was thankfully around to see his number retired by the Dodgers too.
