Bob Talbot wore #10 while playing with the Chicago Cubs in 1953 and 1954, the ninth player to wear the number in Cubbie history. A few years after Talbot hung up his cleats, another player wore #10 from 1960 through 1973, entering the Hall of Fame in 2012, and the number will never be worn again in Chicago , having been retired in 2003. Who was it? [ Answer ]
