COUNTING DOWN: The Best Yankee At Each Uniform Number (#64)

By Paul Semendinger


“Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m 64?” (The Beatles)

Well, it seems that the Yankees have needed a lot of number 64s, or, at least they have since 2007.

The following is the complete list of players who have worn #64 as Yankees:

Bill Fulton (1987)

Bronson Sardinha (2007)

Francisco Cervelli (2008)

Romulo Sanchez (2010)

Hector Noesi (2011)

Cesar Cabral (2013-14)

Chaz Roe (2014)

Chris Leroux (2014)

Rob Refsnyder (2015)

Jacob Lindgren (2015)

Jose DePaula (2015)

Nick Goody (2016)

Ben Gamel (2016)

Garrett Cooper (2017)

Domingo German (2017)

Yikes! That is a long list, a long list of players, some of whom I don’t even remember.

(Maybe the Yankees don’t love the players they give #64 to. It’s possible!)

The following is the complete list of Yankees who wore #64 and played in at least 20 games in #64:

Hector Noesi, 30 games pitched (2-2, 4.47 over 56.1 innings) – but, wait, he also wore #45 that season.

Nick Goody, 20 games pitched (0-0, 4.66 over 29 innings) – but wait, he also wore #41 and #57 that season.


How is one to choose?

Interesting, the following players hit over .300 in the season they wore #64:

Bronson Sardinha (.333 in 9 at bats)

Rob Refsnyder (.302 in 43 at bats)

Garret Cooper (.326 in 43 at bats)

Those 43 at bats for Garret Cooper gets him the honor. It was difficult to choose.

The Greatest Yankee Ever in uniform #64 was Garret Cooper.

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
