WannaBe: I personally don't see the need of the number after the letter. Examples: The Bishop controlls the c-g diagnal, or the queen controls the h-b diagnal... The numbers themselves are not really that necessary. In my opinion.

  technical draw: And the curse of the declined draw strikes again! I offered player <albekof> (friends of Baku) a draw when we had just queens and a few pawns. He declined. And the next move he made he checked me on a square protected by my queen. Game over!

  YouRang: <Baseball Retired Numbers Trivia>

There are a number of players who have had their jersey number retired for two teams (e.g. Greg Maddux for Braves and Cubs, Rod Carew for Twins and Angels).

What player's jersey number has been retired for *three* teams?

Extra credit: A player named Wade Boggs had his jersey number retired. For which team?

Apr-17-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <YouRang> I think the answer is Nolan Ryan?

Boggs have his number retired by the Yankees?

Apr-17-14
Premium Chessgames Member
  YouRang: Yep, Nolan Ryan so honored by the Angels, Rangers, and Astros.

Boggs was so honored by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays! He played his last 2 seasons there and got his 3000th hit with the Rays.
