Retired Numbers: #12

Only two teams have retired #12. Both players honored are Hall of Famers, and recent ones at that.

Wade Boggs, Tampa Bay Devil Rays

Despite only playing for the club for two years, Tampa Bay retired #12 for Boggs after his retirement. He collected his 3000th career hit with the Devil Rays in 1999. Neither the Red Sox nor the Yankees have retired his uniform number to date, though he was inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame in 2004 and the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2005.

Roberto Alomar, Toronto Blue Jays
