The first baseball team to use numbers on uniforms was the 1916 Cleveland Indians when they wore small numbers on the sleeves of their uniforms, as a way of identifying the players. This practice was short lived.

in 1929 the New York Yankees decided to wear numbers to the backs of their jerseys. The numbers corresponded to each player's general position in the lineup.for example Babe Ruth wore No. 3, since he usually batted third, and Lou Gehrig wore No. 4 as he batted fourth.

High numbered uniforms such as 60 is typically issued to a rookies or a player that is not expected to make the team at the begining of the year. Some players chose to keep their number when they make the big Leagues. Here is a list of Yankee players that have worn uniform number 60 for the New York Yankees. * Jim Narrujo * Jim Fink * Bill Olsen * Brian Dayett * Bert Bradley * Rick Balabon * Paul Zuvella * Chris Alvarez * Mike Humphreys * Jim Mecir * Tim McIntosh * Darrell Einertson * Nick Johnson * Hipolito Pena * Brandon Knight * J.T. Snow * Brandon Claussen * Eric Almonte * Julio De Paula (2003) * Michael Hernandez (2003) * Sam Marsonek (2004) * Felix Escalona (2004) * Wil Nieves (2005)
