New York Yankees Retired Numbers

The Yankees' almost endless list of retired numbers will have three more added to it this year, starting with Bernie Williams’s No. 51 Sunday May 24 during a pregame ceremony at Yankee Stadium. Similar honors for Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte will follow in late August. The understated center fielder will be immortalized alongside Mantle, Ruth, DiMaggio and Gehrig at the stadium's Monument Park.
