In 2015, the New York Yankees will add three more names to the Monument Park. The Yankees announced on Monday that the organization will retire the numbers of Jorge Posada (No. 20), Andy Pettitte (No. 46) and Bernie Williams (No. 51) during the upcoming season. Williams will go first on May 24, Posada will be second on Aug. 22 and Pettitte will cap it off the very next day on Aug. 23.
Unlike Pettitte, who had a brief three-year stint with the Houston Astros before returning to the Bronx, Bernie and Posada played their entire career in pinstripes for 16 and 17 seasons, respectively. Clearly, Posada is honored to be placed in such high regard:
However, it's a known fact that you cannot make everyone happy. Case in point, former Yankee Chuck Knoblauch.
Hey Chuck, you know what else we hope doesn't retire? This!
This trio of players will add to the Yankees' 16 retired numbers, the most in the MLB.
