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
8-Yogi Berra, Bill Dickey
42-Jackie Robinson (entire MLB)
For Argument sake, we'll stop at 25 for my article.
