Comments on: 10 for 10: #3 Player Uniform Numbers http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/5105 This and that about baseball stats.

If I remember correctly he had an ill fitting uni for one or 2 games, and wore 28. By the way I love this site and the addition of the uniform number is awesome.!!

Any chance you could have a list on that page of what the team's colors were from what year to what year? (Specifically shown as those neat little circles?)

I was permanently hooked on basketball-reference.com when they added the uniform numbers, and was always slightly disappointed this site didn't have it. So thank you for making my day 🙂

Mark Sagmoen wore Number 42 for the Rangers very briefly as he was just called up to the Rangers days before that number was retired for Jackie Robinson.

Tom Brookens wore #5 for the Tigers until he gave it up to be retired fin honor of Hank Greenberg

Bill Denehy DID NOT wear #4 for the Mets in 1967. Ron Swoboda is correctly shown wearing that number. I believe that Denehy wore 44, but I wouldn't bet more than a 6-pack on it.

I know he switched to 8 in 2007. Here is a pic of the Phillies lineup from the Phillies-Mets game on May 25, 2006:

It might be hard to read, but Victorino was wearing 18. I also have a Victorino shirt with the number 18.

I know you said you figured out where, but just for the record here's an example:

http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/HOU/1999-roster.shtml

Jeff Bagwell's salary is listed as $6,500,000.00, rather than $6,500,000. I think the latter makes more sense, since we're talking millions of dollars.

Some annecdotal info is included in bullpen biographical data, but I love to be able to trace where many oldtimers ended up after their playing days ended.

Also, the Minor League data is a big help. Again, being able to track those old ballplayers after they were cut from the Big League roster is neat.

I love the 10 for 10 features thus far. As a Strat-O-Matic gamer, I like to having access to the lineup info when I play the earlier seasons. The second 10 for 10 installment was Heaven for me.

More complete transaction data would also be nice (DL moves, etc.).
