Retired Numbers: > #50

This will be the last of the Retired Numbers posts that actually feature numbers, but there are a couple more posts to follow, so stayed tuned!


Don Drysdale, Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers

Did you know that Drysdale only received 21% of the vote in his first year on the Hall of Fame ballot? That it wasn’t until his tenth year on the ballot he eclipsed the required 75% for enshrinement? He won a Cy Young Award and was an All-Star several times, but the coolest thing Drysdale ever did was appear in an episode of “The Brady Bunch” in 1970. Barry Williams (who played Greg Brady) has said several times that Drysdale was his favorite guest star.


Trevor Hoffman, San Diego Padres


Carlton Fisk, Chicago White Sox


August Busch, Jr., St. Louis Cardinals


The Fans, Cleveland Indians
