New York Yankees: What Numbers Are Left?

With a franchise as storied as the Yankees, it seems like there are few numbers left un-retired, or very soon to be.

With Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and Alex Rodriguez, not many desirable numbers will still be left for newcomers to pick. 

It is a rite of passage for players to shed their #89 that was designated to them in the minors, for a bright, shiny No. 6 or 22. 

The current retired numbers are as follows

1-Billy Martin

3-Babe Ruth

4-Lou Gehrig

5-Joe DiMaggio

7-Mickey Mantle

8-Yogi Berra, Bill Dickey

9-Roger Maris

10-Phil Rizzuto

15-Thurman Munson

16-Whitey Ford

23-Don Mattingly

32-Elston Howard

37-Casey Stengel

42-Jackie Robinson (entire MLB)

44-Reggie Jackson

49-Ron Guidry

 

For Argument sake, we'll stop at 25 for my article.
