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.

Here is a small list of some noted Baseball players that wore uniform number 55.

Brandon Webb (2003-2004)

Jeff Suppan (1995-97)

Jorge Posada (1996)

Hideki Matsui (2003 - Present)

Shawn Estes (2003)
