    Great stuff if you need to check up on all the retired numbers, including those not fortunate enough to have played for the greatest sports team ever!!!

    Is the Marlin's retired number the manager when they won in 97?

    The Yankees started it all.

    When it 1939, they retired # 4 the Iron Horse Lou Gehrig the greatest of All Yankee First Basemen.

    I wouldn't really know. I just saw this page and figured it was history, so I plunked it in here. The link reads:

    Team:
    Florida Marlins

    Player:
    Carl Barger (Executive)

    Number:
    5

    With Team:
    [Blank]

    Retired:
    1993
    ==========

    There's no "Carl Barger" in MLB history as a player (per www.baseball-reference.com), so it was his number as an exec which was retired. I've never heard of a non-player having a number, much less retiring such number, but stranger things have happened, I suppose.

    He's probably my favorite player of all time. Can you imagine him being #2 anywhere else but the Yankees? Someone of his greatness had to have his #4 retired.

    If Jackie Robinson's number #42 can be retired by all major league teams than why can't Babe Ruth's number #3 be also retired by all major league teams? All Ruth did was save major league baseball after the Black Sox scandal and be considered the greatest ball player of all time by most baseball historians.

    I guess no one ever thought of this. Probably a stupid oversight by businessmen trying to run baseball but forgetting the "game" aspects of things.

    I think you should visit www.netshrine.com, which has lots of old time baseball fans there and you'd feel quite at home.

    Does anyone know why the Reds haven't retired Pete Rose's number? Did the commish tell the Reds they weren't allowed? He should atleast have his number retired.
