The New York Yankees were the first team to begin regularly wearing uniform numbers. A tradition dating back to 1929. Other teams before 1929 tried putting numbers on their uniforms, but mostly on an experimental only basis, usually not lasting longer than a season or sometimes even past a few games.  The Yankees were the first to implement uniform numbers and maintain the practice indefinitely.

This website attempts to make it easy to find who wore what numbers in what year since they began wearing numbers in 1929.  It's not 100% complete, so if there's any information you can help with, please feel free to contact me to fill in the blanks.

Rays pound five homers in 16-1 win over Yankees (The SportsXchange)

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The New York Yankees have 15 games to go against the Tampa Bay Rays this season, but it's a safe bet that they wish that somehow they would dodge facing Chris Archer. Archer beat the New York Yankees all three times he faced them as a rookie last season, and he picked right up where he left off Saturday, scattering three hits through 6 2/3 innings as the Rays earned a 16-1 win. The Rays made it easy for Archer, staking him to their biggest display of power of the season. Tampa Bay pounded out five home runs to tie their franchise high at home in Tropicana Field.
Yankees-Rays Preview (The Associated Press)

After struggling for almost two weeks to score runs, the Tampa Bay Rays have had little trouble doing so over their previous two games against the New York Yankees. The Rays hope to continue their offensive surge and maintain their recent success against the visiting Yankees on Sunday. Tampa Bay (9-9) hit .194 and totaled 16 runs while losing seven of 10, including 10-2 to New York on Thursday. However, the Rays have batted .410 and recorded 32 hits while outscoring the Yankees (10-8) 27-6 in the last two games.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- The Tampa Bay Rays followed a comeback win with a blowout victory over the New York Yankees. Ryan Hanigan homered twice and had a career-high six RBIs, and Chris Archer continued his dominance over the Yankees as the Rays routed New York 16-1 on Saturday night. ''It's an awesome team win,'' Hanigan said. We all swung the bats pretty well.''

Marlins' Alvarez pitches two-hitter vs. Mariners (The SportsXchange)

MIAMI -- Right-hander Henderson Alvarez of the Miami Marlins had a problem in the sixth inning -- and it had nothing to do with the hit he allowed that broke up his bid for a perfect game. Instead, it was a single he hit to center in which he was badly jammed by Seattle Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias. "When I got to first, I was in such pain that I thought I had broken all five of my fingers (on my right hand)," Alvarez said. Fortunately for the Marlins, Alvarez's hand was fine -- and so was his pitching.

Red Sox rough luck with replay continues following another questionable call (Big League Stew)

By and large expanded replay is working to the satisfaction of most around Major League Baseball . However, the Boston Red Sox may be the one big exception so far after a pair of reviews during their series with the New York Yankees last weekend appeared to show one thing, but were ruled differently, both costing the Red Sox. In one case, MLB was forced to admit that a replay error cost Boston an out when they couldn't find an angle that showed the play conclusively. Meanwhile, fans at home were treated to no less than three angles that were conclusive.  Manager John Farrell expressed his displeasure over those calls and replay in general  early this week, but by Friday the Red Sox were ready to move forward. Unfortunately, it didn't take long for them to end up on the wrong end of another apparent missed called on a review during their 8-4 loss to the Baltimore Orioles . It actually happened on John Lackey's first pitch of the game. Nick Markakis lined one down the left field line and towards the corner at Fenway Park. The ball was ruled fair, though at first look it did appear the ball touched down foul and kicked dirt on the line. However, it was close enough that either way it was called, it was likely to be challenged by the other manager.

Blue Jays-Indians Preview (The Associated Press)

Mark Buehrle hasn't required much offensive support this season, but the Toronto Blue Jays' bats have given him plenty and the tools for more are on the way. The veteran left-hander will go for his fourth win in as many starts Saturday against the Indians with shortstop Jose Reyes set to join the club in Cleveland for the second of a three-game series. However, Toronto (9-8) placed designated hitter Adam Lind on the 15-day disabled list after originally hoping he'd return over the weekend. "It's big, he's a big part of our team," manager John Gibbons told the team's official website of Reyes.
