The top two are the Boston Celtica and NY Yankees: The Celtics retires a total of 21 retired numbers for 22 people -- two players wore 18, and it ras retired for both of them. There are 16 former Yankees with their uniform numbers retired. While Jackie Robinson's #42 was retired from Baseball entirely in '97, players already wearing 42 were allowed to keep it. NYY pitcher Mariano Rivera is the last active player still wearing 42.
No. All MLB teams have at least one retired number: Jackie Robinson's #42.

8 - Steve Young 12 - John Brodie 16 - Joe Montana 34 - Joe Perry 37 - Jimmy Johnson 39 - Hugh McElhenny 42 - Ronnie Lott 70 - Charlie Krueger 73 - Leo Nomellini 79 - Bob St. Clair 87 - Dwight Clark There is also a space for Bill Walsh among the team's retired numbers.
42 because it's Jackie robinsons number and every team has it retired (there will never be another #42, ever) The above answer is absolutely correct as no player in MLB, once Mariano Rivera of the Yankees retires, will ever wear the #42 again. The number that has been retired by the most teams, other than #42, is #20 which has been retired by 9 teams ... Reds (Frank Robinson), Orioles (also Frank Robinson), Dodgers (Don Sutton), Giants (Monte Irvin), Cardinals (Lou Brock), Royals (Frank White), Phillies (Mike Schmidt), Diamondbacks (Luis Gonzalez), and Pirates (Pie Traynor).
