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.

Who wore what numbers in what year? Here's the place to start:

Mystery Photo

Do you know or think you know who this player is? This mystery image was submitted by a visitor to Yankee Numbers. He found the photo and reached out to me to see if I can identify this Yankee.  Send us your best guess using the form at the bottom.  The best hints I can give you is that it's NOT Joe Pepitone OR Joe Torre (this Yankee's first name is NOT JOE) and that this player never wore the pinstripes in Yankee Stadium.
