Retired Uniform Numbers by Team

+ Extra Bases
  • This is a complete listing of retired numbers by Major League Baseball and its teams.
  • A retired jersey is an honor bestowed upon a player whereby his jersey number is no longer available to be worn by players on that team. Jackie Robinson's #42 was retired in 1997 . No player was allowed to adopt the # going forward, however, players who already wore the number were allowed to continue to wear the # until their career was completed.
  • Mariano Rivera worethe number until 2013. Before Rivera, Mo Vaughn was the last player to wear #42 in 2003.
  • There are 4 players from the Montreal Expos listed below since the Washington Nationals chose not to honor the retired numbers from the Montreal franchise.
  • The Miami Marlins had retired the #5 for their first team president Carl Barger but when they moved to their new ballpark in 2012, they made the number available and created a special plaque for Barger instead. Logan Morrison was the first player to wear the number for the Marlins.
  • The Cincinnati Reds had retired the #5 originally for Willard Hershberger in 1940 but re-released the number in 1942. The number would eventually be retired for Johnny Bench.
