The number 13 has been thought of as an unlucky number. Well, I guess that means today we will be commemorating the unlucky few who chose to wear it.
Former Met and current Brave Billy Wagner wore #13 for the Mets. Nobody is listed at #13 for the Braves an I'm not familiar with their retired numbers but he would presumably wear that number this year.
Brendan Ryan wears cool socks. Erm, stirrups.
Casey Kotchman wears #13 for the Mariners.
That's all of them. All the players you might have heard of. It's only three but I think people are afraid of wearing the number. Especially for the Mets.
Let's Go Mets!
