A New Ultimate Number Player: Michael Young

You may remember this post, where I selected Ron Santo as the Ultimate #10. Not many players have been able to wear #10 with every stint with every team they played for, so Santo's two teams make him the guy, since pictures of Lefty Grove with a visible #10 are rare.

However, this is no longer the case. With the retirement of Michael Young last year, we have a player who played with three different franchises in his career, and wore #10 with each of them! And considering how bad he was his last two seasons, it's a fairly safe bet that he's not coming back. It was time for the guy to go.

Ron Santo, as a Cub fan I love ya, but your title belongs to someone else now. Please welcome the new Ultimate #10: Michael Young!
