    When A-Rod came to the Yankees in 2004, I thought he should have chosen the only single digit number left: 0. He would have been the only Yankee ever to wear that number, and I think it just looks really cool.

      According to yankeenumbers.com, no one has ever wore number 0 in Yankee history.

            Al Oliver wore #0 for the Expos. I have a nice signed picture of him where he added a "#0" on it. Probably the nicest player I've ever encoutered at a signing. Tiant and Bill Lee were also great guys.

                Well, I don't think A-Rod will pull a Kobe and change his number mid-career, so maybe 0 will go to the next Yankee phenom in the next few years. :cap:

                  I actually like this idea a lot. I think the number 0, which is the last single digit number left, would look really cool on a Yankee uniform. How can we relay this message to Brett Gardner, anyone know him??

                    0 is NOT the last single digit number left.

                    The Number 6 is still available.

I said, Mr. Barrow, there is only one answer to that - Mr. Gehrig is terribly underpaid."- Yankees outfielder Joe DiMaggio

                      A real member of the Indians, Junior Ortiz, wore 0. When Paul Dade played for Cleveland, he wore 00.

                        Oliver is as gracious as they come. We actually spoke more about his hometown than anything else.

                        Has anyone wore #0 for a significant amount of time. A couple of seasons out of a lenghthy career, like Jeffrey Leonard, doesn't count.

                        I've never been a fan of when marketing and PR takes a hold of number assignment. Let A-Rod keep 13.

                          We were in the back row of the grandstand at Fenway once, and my buddy recognized Bill from behind a good 40-50 feet away...we yelled, "Hey Bill!", and he sauntered over and sort of had a discussion with us without making eye contact or addressing us directly. It was odd, but fun...I don't think many people around us knew who he was. He's definitely a character, you won't meet many like him!
                          Much friendlier than Eck, who rolled his eyes and sighed when I dared to look at him under the stands as he hustled by. I was going to say something nice like, "There's a HOFer right there", as he went by and not try to stop him, but just nudged my buddy and told him what a sour face Eck had just pulled.

                          I think that players wearing 0 or 00 is pretty fun, but it might not fit in with the conservative Yanks tradition. Probably be seen as frivolous or disrespectful.
                          I'd like to see the soon-to-be San Jose area A's debut the use of irrational and imaginary numbers...pi, e, i. It would fit in with the geeky nature of the area (the company I work for is based near there, Silicon Valley).

                          EDIT - just realized this is the Yanks forum...hope I'm not too far off topic.

                            I Thought about getting my dad a personalized Jersey With "0" on the back since our name starts with o, and it could say both of our 'nicknames' on the back "Steve O".

                              That's really cool, I will make sure to look for the guys with "O" on their backs when I go to the stadium. I'll say hi!
