Yankee uniform numbers in hexadecimal: more that can be retired.

This is not completely original but it's fun.  Below are a few numbers converted to the base 16 number system: hexadecimal.  This allows for expansion of the New York Yankee plan to distract fans with trite and meaningless ceremonies.  Try a few numbers yourself with one of the converter sites.

Decimal to Hexadecimal Converter

Jorge Posada 20 is 14 in hex
Andy Pettitte 46 converts to 2E
Bernie Williams 51 is 33 in hex

Fortunately, 0 through 9 are the same in both systems, so the following Yankee legends are safe:
Babe Ruth 3
Lou Gehrig 4
Joe DiMaggio 5
Mickey Mantle 7
Bill Dickey and Yogi Berra 8

Whitey Ford is 16 in decimal and 10 in hex.

Phil Rizzuto is the dividing line: 10 in decimal, A in hex.

Got it?
