Can you name the last player to wear #42 for each team?
Some hints:
- no Rays or Dbags
- it's a total of 21 players as some wore it last for more than one team
- oddly enough, if I counted right, 8 of the 21 were Mets (major league team, not organization) at one time or another.

I was curious and then very surprised at the number of guys who were once Mets, including one who was the last 42 for 3 different teams.

Husky was one, Mo Vaughn, Riger Mcdowell, Ron Hodges, Ron Taylor, Chuck Webb (who was the losing pitcher in the mets longest game 26 innings aginst the cardinals in Sept 74), Chuck Taylor. Those are the 7 that I remember. I can't remember anyone else...who was number eight?

"Can you name the last player to wear #42 for each team?"

Its a 25 way tie for each team in the MLB between everyone who was on each team's roster for the 2012 Jackie Robinson day when they all wore #42.

Husky is correct (Mariners). Vaughn was the last 42 for the Mets, Angels, and Red Sox. All the others are incorrect.

Just the ones that gave incorrect answers to their trivia questions. They all figured I would become a lawyer someday with all the loopholes I would find....they were right.
