COUNTING DOWN: The Best Yankee At Each Uniform Numbers (#82)

By Paul Semendinger

***

The 2020 season was the season when the Yankees gave out a lot of numbers for the very first time.

It will be interesting to see if the players who were issued these high numbers will keep them in 2021. Heck, for some of these players, it’ll be interesting to see if some even play for the Yankees in 2021.

Anyway, the greatest Yankee to ever wear #82 is Brooks Kriske. (He, of course, is the only Yankee to ever wear this number.)

In 2020, Kriske, a pitcher, appeared in all of four games. He threw 3.2 innings. He allowed six runs. His ERA stands at 14.73.

Brooks Kriske has a bright future, hopefully with the Yankees.

Here’s hoping he pitches well in uniform #82 in 2021.
