Best Answer

MLB has retired one number, the #42 of Jackie Robinson.

Individual teams have retired numbers, but none are recognized by the rest of the league.

For example, no one on the St. Louis Cardinals can wear Bob Gibson's retired #45, but no one in the league can wear the MLB's retired #42.

what is said up there is not true. mariano rivera where's #42!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, but Rivera was wearing #42 when they retired it. He was grandfathered in.
