Actually, they issued it to Quinton McCracken before Hopper. It looked so odd to see the squat McCracken wearing the number.
The Reds have unofficially retired a few number in the past, and I think they should do it again with #3.
I remember the Reds issued Dick Simpson the same number Frank Robinson wore (#20) in 1966. That was totally wrong in my young (at the time) mind.
