Baseball players wear numbers on their jerseys so they can be identified.
At all levels of Baseball, players have numbers on their jerseys so fans, sports reporter and baseball officials can see who they are by the number they wear.

Many MLB teams also have their last names on their jerseys as well, but not, for example the NY Yankees.
