Career highlights and awards

John Burwell Reed (February 2, 1933 in Silver City, Mississippi) is a former professional baseball player. He was an outfielder over parts of three seasons (1961–1963) with the New York Yankees. Reed was a member of the 1961 World Series champion Yankees. An alumnus of the University of Mississippi, for the Yankees Reed played primarily as a late-inning defensive replacement for star outfielder Mickey Mantle. For this reason, he was popularly known as "Mickey Mantle's caddy."[1]

For his career Reed hit .233 with 1 home run and 6 runs batted in in 222 games played (129 at-bats). He is only one of seven players in Major League Baseball history with more career games played than plate appearances.[2]

On June 24, 1962, Reed hit the only home run of his career in the top of the 22nd inning, as the Yankees beat the Detroit Tigers 9-7 in the longest game in Yankees' history.[3]
