Facts, Trivia, Memories and More about Joe McCarthy


  • I'm often asked either why Joe McCarthy does not have a uniform number listed or why his number has not been retired.  The answer is simple:  Joe McCarthy did not wear a uniform number.  I haven't been able to find any documented explanation during his Yankee years, however, in the book "Red Sox by the Numbers: A Complete Team History of the Boston Red Sox" by Bill Nowlin and Matthew Silverman, it's noted that when Joe managed the Red Sox from 1948-50, he "chose to wear a uniform with no number during his reign."  So, it's very likely he made the same choice when managing the Yankees.
