Jody Reed stands as one of the great all-around baseball players ever to attend Florida State University. After working his way through the minor league system, Reed has been a mainstay in the Boston Red Sox infield for the past five years.

A transfer from Manatee Community College, Reed was drafted twice before he stepped on the field at Florida State. He was a two-year starter at shortstop for the Seminoles, leading FSU to a pair of Metro Conference Tournament titles.

"If there is one factor you can credit to the success of our club, it's the addition of Jody Reed," FSU Head Coach Mike Martin said of Reed during the 1983 season.

Reed was an All-South Regional selection in 1983 and Metro Conference MYP in 1984. In 1983, Reed led the club in runs scored (97), doubles (23), walks (68) and stolen bases (31). With Reed at short, FSU turned a school-record 88 double plays.

Drafted in the seventh round by the Boston Red Sox, Reed immediately began his climb to the major leagues. He continues to live the game, fastly becoming Florida State's most recognized major leaguer.
