Re: # 42 ?

"Normally the individual clubs are responsible for retiring numbers. On April 15, 1997, Major League Baseball took the unusual move of retiring a number for all teams. On the 50th anniversary of Jackie Robinson's breaking the major league color barrier, his number 42 was retired throughout the majors, at the order of Commissioner Bud Selig. This meant that no future player on any major league team could wear number 42, although players wearing #42 at the time were allowed to continue with it."

Mariano Rivera for the Yankees is the only MLB player left wearing #42 on a daily basis!
Once he is done, the number is done and retired for good!

Re: # 42 ?

Along with what Peppy posted, every player on every MLB team on April 15th of each year will wear 42 in honor of Jackie.

It gets confusing if you are at a game.

2F for a while...
