Mariano Rivera Number 42Mariano Rivera is the last Major league ballplayer, and Yankees player still wearing uniform number 42. Major League Baseball retired Jackie Robinsons uniform number 42. No Other player on any team can wear the number. Because Mariano had the number when Robinsons number was retired he was allowed to continue wearing it. When Mariano Rivera retires from baseball the New York Yankees will retire uniform number 42 in honor him.
Yes they did!!!!!
No, that would be ridiculous!
The Giants franchise did not retire a number until 1944, when it honored Hall of Fame pitcher Carl Hubbell, who wore No. 11. The New York Giants were the first National League team ever to retire a player's number.
Overall, the New York Yankees, even though i am not a fan of either team, the Yankees are way better overall. But since Jeter retired, A-Rod might retire soon, then the teams might be fairly equal
Clemens' last appearance in a major-league uniform was as a member of the New York Yankees on September 16, 2007.
