The New York Yankees have a lot of double-digit jersey numbers on the field.
O’Neill, an outfielder who was part of four Yankees World Series championships between 1996 and 2000, had his number retired prior to New York’s 4-2 win over Toronto.
So, how many jersey numbers do the Yankees have left?
After Sunday’s retirement, the Yankees have retired the jersey of 24 players and managers.
So what’s left?
The numbers 1-10 are all out.
- Billy Martin.
- Derek Jeter.
- Babe Ruth.
- Lou Gehrig.
- Joe DiMaggio.
- Joe Torre.
- Mickey Mantle.
- Yogi Berra, Bill Dickey.
- Roger Maris.
- Phil Rizzuto.
The numbers 11-14 are available, but the late Thurman Munson’s No. 15 is retired, as is No. 16 for Whitey Ford. That leaves 17-19 before Jorge Posada’s No. 20 becomes unavailable.
Here are the rest of the retired numbers for the Yankees.
21. Paul O’Neill.
23. Don Mattingly.
32. Elston Howard.
37. Casey Stengel.
42. Jackie Robinson, Mariano Rivera.
44. Reggie Jackson.
46. Andy Pettitte.
49. Ron Guidry.
51. Bernie Williams.
The numbers 52-99 leave another 48 available numbers.
In total, 22 jersey numbers are retired for the Yankees, leaving 77 numbers for current players. It remains to be seen if the current No. 99, MVP candidate Aaron Judge, stays with the Yankees and eventually ends up with his jersey retired.
The lowest number on the current roster is 12, worn by infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa.
