#42 has been retired by ALL major league teams (in honor of Jackie Robinson).

Mariano Rivera still wears it. All #42 wearers were grandfathered in when this rule came into effect and he's the only one still playing. But it will be retired by the Yankees when Mo retires. So interestingly, the greatest closer of all time will never have his number retired (in his own honor).

If Jackie Robinson isn't the answer for the most [assuming he's disqualified since its by baseball and not the teams individually] I'd guess Nolan Ryan maybe ['Stros, Rangers, Angels?] Just a guess.

no, not #42, should have specified that.

#2-I mean which number (1-99) has been retired the most.

I'll guess uniform #3 has been retired by the most teams.

My second guesses are 25 and 8.

#3 is very close but not the right answer

#8 and #5 have been retired 7 times. The correct answer has been retired 8 times

Who are the only 2 major leaguers to have 2 different uniform numbers retired?

Carlton Fisk - 27 Bosox 72 Chisox

Nolan Ryan 30 Angels, 34 Astros & Rangers

BTW, F. Robinson has #20 retired for both the Reds and O's.

Ok, I get it now.

(1) Nolan Ryan has #30 & #34 retired.
(2) Is it #1 that has been retired 8 times?

Which uniform number has been retired by the most teams?

I would guess that is the #1 - seven teams have it retired, including our own Cincinnati Reds.

Sorry, let me change that to which 3 players have had 2 numbers retired? Forgot Fisk

BTW, in reviewing the list I was checking (is that cheating?), I noticed something we discussed some weeks ago - players who played prior to the use of numbers being honored (e.g. Christy Mathewson, John McGraw). I think we ought to start a movement for the Reds to retire "the number" of Edd Roush.

Duke Snider - Dodgers
Ralph Kiner - Pirates
Lou Gehrig - Yankees
Paul Molitor - Brewers
Mel Ott - Giants
Joe Cronin - Red Sox

Strange, since Boggs wore #26 for the Red Sox.

Nevermind, he's under the "should be retired" category, and he did wear #26. Like I said, I didn't get much sleep last night...:laugh:
