Facts, Trivia, Memories and More about LaTroy Hawkins

Notes: In 2008, LaTroy switched back to #22 after receiving a negative reaction from Yankee fans who booed him and chanted "Paul O'Neill" when he took the mound at Yankee Stadium originally wearing O'Neill's former #21. Apparently Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter and some other Yankee veterans persuaded him to switch, telling him it was just a number and not worth the headache.

Notes: LaTroy wore #22 throughout Spring Training and Morgan Ensberg wore #21. Apparently, Ensberg received a lot of flak being the first Yankee since Paul O'Neill to wear the number and break its semi-retirement. As soon as the opportunity came up, Ensberg switched to #11 and LaTroy swooped in and took #21 in honor of Roberto Clemente.
