The Top Ten

1 42

Tribute to a great player, a very important one. Jackie Robinson "re-broke" the color barrier (don't believe me? Look it up.) and was a great player. Mo Rivera wore 42, and it took some guts to keep wearing it, so his number couldn't be retired. Rivera was a great player, and the last to ever wear no. 42. - AlGalaxy

Jackie Robinson was one of the best black players in the mlb just wake up and see

This number belong to Jackie Robinson, MLB has retired this number and it hasn't been used since.

If you guys don't know anything about baseball no one should ever where the number 42 it was retired for mlb, little league, club and so on

Robby Cano, Old Manny, Mark Teixeira with the Braves, Willie Mays Tony Perez, and Early Wynn.

So many great players to wear 24. One of the hardest debates to have in baseball is who was the greatest 24? Griffey, Mays, Henderson? Many more greats who weren't as good.

Worn it past two years, I mean Teixeira, Griffey, Mays, and HENDERSON. That list deserves to be the best.

I think 13 is better because Marino wore that number and he was awesome.

Derek jeter wears 2 best shortstop in the mlb to me

I'm always #2 the low numbers are the best

Catchers in kokoyakyuu (High School Baseball in Japan) wear this number. And I'm a catcher. So put two and two together.

Papi, Felix, and BRYCE HARPER (google him I you don't know him... Hit a 570ft hr as a freshman, which wasn't a fluke, can throw 96, throw runner out from his knees as catcher (his primary position) and the fastest bat speed ever

Kirby Puckett, Big Papi, Felix Hernandez, Nolan Ryan, and Bryce Harper all great players!

Yeah I agree it's a pretty cool number, However I wouldn't were it unless you are a freshmen or above player

Bryce Harper for MVP!

The Contenders

11 99

That's my number in baseball but you got to put 16. My all time favorite number

It's unique. Not everyone can pull off wearing 99.

Manny Ramirez?
Made some mistakes but owned up to them like a man and turned a better path. Plus is also batting coach for the cubs.
Cubs world series winners 2016!

Catfish hunter. Some all time greats here.

A lot of great baseball players. As an angels fan I have had the pleasure to watch two future hall of famers wear this number. Vlad and Trout (most likely will be at this pace)

Oh come on we got mike trout, Matt Kemp, José Altuve and of course my man Stanton

We got stanton the should be nl MVP if he didn't break his face, altuve small but good leading the nl in batting average with.341, and trout the AL MVP. Most numbers don't even have one good player. There are also players like kemp, Berkman, Kevin brown, Carlton Fisk, catfish hunter, and many more. Vote for #27 it's the greatest.
By the way it also looks like an awesome number.

Look at the players who wear this number it's a great hybrid number worn by all position more notable players are catcher yadier Molina, Brandon Phillips, and the royals outfielder with the cannon Alex Gordon and also Astros young star George springer!

The first number to ever be retired.

Yadier, Lou Gehrig, Brandon, Alex Gordon, and George Springer. This number needs no introduction
