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.

Anna drew a bases-loaded walk on a full-count pitch with two outs in the 12th inning and Carlos Beltran followed with a two-run single as the New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-1 on Sunday. ''I was having fun,'' Anna said. ''Baseball is all about moments, and that was a moment right there.'' Yangervis Solarte was walked by Heath Bell (0-1) to open the 12th.

Brewers 3, Pirates 2 (14 innings) (The SportsXchange)

PITTSBURGH -- Left fielder Khris Davis' first home run of the season, leading off the top of the 14th inning, lifted the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday. Davis' third hit of the game came off Jeanmar Gomez (0-1) and carried deep into the left-field bleachers. The Brewers got all their runs on solo homers as left fielder Ryan Braun and first baseman Mark Reynolds also connected. They were two outs from losing in the top of the ninth inning when Braun hit his sixth home run, a drive to left field off closer Jason Grilli that tied the score at 2-2.
Yankees' RHP Nova on DL due to elbow ligament tear (The Associated Press)

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- New York Yankees right-hander Ivan Nova has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow, an injury that often requires Tommy John surgery. Nova left Saturday night's game against Tampa Bay in the fifth inning. An MRI after the game revealed the injury and he was placed on the 15-day disabled list. ''It's hard,'' Nova said.

Ivan Nova likely to face Tommy John surgery after partially torn UCL diagnosis (Big League Stew)

Elbow injuries around Major League Baseball continue piling up at an alarming rate. The latest on the list and another likely to face Tommy John surgery is New York Yankees right-hander Ivan Nova, who was diagnosed with a partially torn UCL following his early exit Saturday night against the Tampa Bay Rays. From MLB.com's Bryan Hoch:   The MRI on RHP Ivan Nova last night has revealed a partial tear of ulnar collateral ligament of his right elbow. “Tommy John” surgery is a possibility, though the Yankees will look at the chance that the injury can be rehabbed first. A standard and expected response, but even partially torn ligaments lead to Tommy John surgery more times than not. According to Michael J. Fensom of Newsday , 20 major league pitchers have undergone Tommy John surgery since the end of last season, including Matt Moore of the Tampa Bay Rays and Kris Medlen of the Atlanta Braves. Nova would push that number to 21, and with minor leaguers taken into account that number obviously shoots even higher. There seems to be no good answer as to why we've seen such a dramatic increase in such a short amount of time, but it's obviously becoming a growing concern as more organizations are affected.  As for Nova's situation, in hindsight, it's clear he wasn't nearly the same pitcher who posted a  3.10 ERA with 116 strikeouts in 139 1/3 innings last season. Through four starts, concluding with Saturday's eight runs over four innings, Nova had an 8.27 ERA with 32 hits and six home runs allowed in 20 2/3 innings. Chances are he hasn't been full strength since opening day, but attempted to gut through the discomfort.  With the looming possibility that Nova will be lost for the season, New York will be forced to reshuffle the pitching deck. Late Saturday night, they called up 23-year-old right-hander Bryan Mitchell, who before the season was ranked New York's 21st best prospect by Baseball America. It seems he'll get the first crack, but the always creative Yankees will be prepared to go other directions if he falters or if more injuries pop up. One thing is definitely for sure. The saying about never having enough pitching is proving more true by the week. Depth around the league is being seriously tested, which could lead to a season of big offensive stats in MLB.   More MLB coverage from Yahoo Sports: - - - - - - - Mark Townsend is a writer for Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports.

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.'' Hanigan drove in his final two runs with a single off Yankees infielder Dean Anna, who gave up two runs and three hits in the eighth inning.
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.
