    Posted by on November 24th, 2013 · Comments (8)

    Brian McCann wore #16 with the Braves. But, he won’t be wearing that number with the Yankees.

    Johnny Bench wore #5.
    Wally Schang, Yogi Berra, Bill Dickey and Gary Carter wore #8.
    Ivan Rodriguez wore #7. Joe Mauer wears it now too.
    Mike Piazza wore #31.
    Ted Simmons wore #23.
    Thurman Munson wore #15.
    Bill Freehan wore #11.
    Jorge Posada wore #20.
    Gabby Hartnett wore #9 and #2.
    Carlton Fisk wore #27 and #72.
    Mickey Cochrane wore #2 and #3.
    Ernie Lombardi wore close to a dozen different numbers.

    Yadier Molina wears #4. Buster Posey wears #28. Matt Wieters wears #32.

    What number will McCan wear for the Yankees?

      He’ll pull a Fisk and wear 61.

      McCann: What about 13?

      Doctor Dizzy: That’s a bad-luck number. I won’t go into that.

      I bet he takes 14…

      I was, of course, joking… but what a great way to twist A-Rod if he’s suspended… Give his number to some rookie in Spring training.

      LOL. After Leyritz and A-Rod, I would be careful about taking on #13, even if I was a rookie.

      His 1st 15 choices were taken, so, McCann went with 34:

      1+6=7
      3+4=7
      makes sense
