                            1946 was 31 year old left handed batter Bud Metheny's 4th consecutive season with the Yankees. In all of the previous seasons he had appeared in over 100 games but in his final MLB season he appeared in just 3 games failing to get a hit in 3 at bats. Signed by the Red Sox he never appeared for them. The last player to represent the Yankees with the number 3 on his back.

                              31 year old left handed hitting outfielder Roy Weatherly returned to the Yankees 3 years after his previous appearance. He only had 2 at bats despite a .500 batting average.

                              Hank Majeski and Jake Wade also appeared for the Yankees as far as I am aware no photos exist for either in a Yankees uniform.
