Retired Numbers: #10

This group includes a few of the most hotly debated Hall of Famers in Dawson, Rizzuto, and Santo.

Dick Howser, Kansas City Royals

The first person honored with a retired number by the Royals, Howser led the team to a championship in 1985. As the manager of the league champion, Howser was named the manager of the 1986 AL All-Star squad. That would be his final game as he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and could no longer perform his duties. He attempted a comeback in 1987, but was too weak. He passed in June 1987.

Andre Dawson, Montreal Expos

Phil Rizzuto, New York Yankees

Ron Santo, Chicago Cubs

Rusty Staub, Montreal Expos

Sparky Anderson, Cincinnati Reds
