I recently decided that I would start a tradition of getting my son a baseball jersey for each of his birthdays. Each year, he will get a player who wore the number that corresponds with his age.
My criteria is simple: The number must be retired, and the player must be one of the all-time greats of the options available.
I've mapped out the first nine birthdays, and I hope you enjoy. Just don't ruin the surprise for my son.
