Mets to retire Jerry Koosman’s number next year

The Mets announced today that they plan on retiring Jerry Koosman’s number 36 next year.

Koosman was always the number two guy behind Tom Seaver in the Mets rotation, but he was a beloved member of the Miracle Mets and was well-respected among his teammates. He also could pitch a little: He was 17-9 with a 2.20 ERA (160 ERA+) in 241 innings across 32 starts for the ’69 Mets and won two games in the World Series against the heavily-favored Orioles. He’d go on to pitch 12 total years in New York, winning 140 games. In all he pitched 19 seasons in the bigs, winning 222 games and posting a career ERA of 3.36 (ERA+ 110).

Giants reveal they’ll retire Will Clark’s No. 22 jersey next season

SAN FRANCISCO—The Giants have kept some numbers on the “unofficially retired” list over the years and have tried to quietly nudge players away from wearing certain ones, but on Sunday they made it official for one of the most important players in franchise history.

Beginning next season, no Giants player will ever wear Will Clark’s No. 22 again.

The announcement was made Sunday as the Giants honored the 1989 team that went to the World Series in large part because of Clark’s contributions. A Giant for eight years, Clark was a five-time All-Star and finished in the top five in MVP voting four times.

He was the star of the late 80’s clubs and a player who helped a new generation fall in love with the Giants. In recent years, Clark has been a special advisor for the club and a regular at Oracle Park. He has always been open about what the honor would mean to him.
