I have a game used turn-back-the-clock jacket from 2001 with the number 23 written inside. I have been looking through all of the resources I could find online and can't figure out who wore #23 (could be a player or coach).

Any one have any ideas? One source suggested Baldwin and Eldred, but I know that both of those are wrong, as I think JB was #37 and Eldred was #21.

It's not a player, apparently.

Joe Nossek was #23.

(Just pulled this from my 2002 Media Guide).

Yeah, I don't remember what number Nossek wore before Robin Ventura left, but after Ventura signed with the Mets prior to the 1998 season, Nossek sported #23 to keep the number "retired" from players until he left the Sox bench after 2003.

From what I can tell, Nossek wore #21 before Ventura left. The next #21 was Cal Eldred in 2000 & 2001.
