    NEW YORK -- The Yankees will retire former Joe Torre's No. 6, leaving Derek Jeter's No. 2 as the last single digit in New York's pinstripes.

    Torre, Rich Gossage, Tino Martinez and Paul O'Neill also will be honored with plaques in Monument Park, the team said Thursday.


    No more single digits
    After Joe Torre's No. 6 is retired, it's safe to say that nobody will ever wear a single-digit number for the Yankees after this season. The only other single-digit number not retired is No. 2 (currently Derek Jeter) and that will assuredly be retired in the near future.

    Yankees Retired Single-Digit Numbers
    1 - Billy Martin
    3 - Babe Ruth
    4 - Lou Gehrig
    5 - Joe DiMaggio
    6 - Joe Torre (just announced)
    7 - Mickey Mantle
    8 - Yogi Berra/Bill Dickey
    9 - Roger Maris

    Torre managed the Yankees to World Series titles in 1996 and from 1998-00 and six AL pennants during 12 seasons as manager that ended in 2007. Currently Major League Baseball's executive vice president for baseball operations, he is being inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame this summer.

    Torre's number will be retired during a ceremony in Monument Park on Aug. 23. His number will join those of Billy Martin (1), Babe Ruth (3), Lou Gehrig (4), Joe DiMaggio (5), Mickey Mantle (7), Yogi Berra and Bill Dickey (8), Roger Maris (9), Phil Rizzuto (10), Thuman Munson (15), Whitey Ford (16), Don Mattingly (23), Elston Howard (32), Casey Stengel (37), Mariano Rivera (42), Reggie Jackson (44) and Ron Guidry (49).

    Jeter, the Yankees' captain since 2003, said in February this will be his final season.

    Martinez's ceremony will be June 21 as part of Old-Timers' Day weekend followed the next day by the honors for Gossage, one of only a handful of pitchers in the Hall of Fame who primarily were relievers. O'Neill's ceremony will be Aug. 9.

    The Yankees said the ceremonies are part of a recognition series that will include Bernie Williams in 2015, but they did not specify what honor Williams will receive.

    It would really be a shame if his # wasn't retired.

    You don't think even O'Neill deserves something? The guy raked for us. 4 World Series titles.

    100+ RBI seasons 4 straight years in his 30's. The guy was a great Yankee. Tino was pretty good, too, but O'Neill deserves it more than him.

    Tino, I don't get. Nice player, but not at the same level as the other guys.
