The Braves retired Chipper Jones’s No. 10 last week, making him the 167th player, manager, team official, broadcaster, or fan base to be honored by today’s 30 teams, according to Baseball-Reference.com.
That doesn’t include the 29 teams who have hung up No. 42 but does include the Dodgers’ No. 42 -- their own Jackie Robinson. The Yankees, the first team to permanently adopt the practice of wearing numbers, was also the first to start retiring them, hanging up Lou Gehrig’s No. 4 in 1939.
