According to whitesox.com, it lists Robbie Alomar as #12 again and Ben Davis as #31. I know you guys were at the edge of your seats waiting to see if Ben Davis would give up his number. :D:

NUMBERS GAME: Ben Davis offered to give up his uniform number so Alomar could wear his usual No. 12. Davis said he didn't want to hold the number for ransom, but the catcher did hint that he wouldn't mind a bottle of Jameson Irish whiskey for the gesture.This guy is definately a team player. We need more guys like him.

Was it #12 or #1?12, then robbie took his number, and then ozzie took his number this year so he went to number 1.

12, then robbie took his number, and then ozzie took his number this year so he went to number 1.I do remember Willie getting a tatoo of his number last year, only to have Robbie Alomar take it from him. He must have 12 tatooed on his arm. Maybe he got the 2 covered up so it just shows the #1. :tongue:

I remember reading last year that Willie took #12 because Robbie Alomar was his hero as a youngster and he wanted to have the same number as him. So it was an honor for him to give up that number when he came to play on the White Sox.

Then they'll retire Lance Johnson's #1. :redneck
