Did you know that more than forty players have worn the number twenty-five for the Boston Red Sox; including Jack Clark , Denny Galehouse , Dizzy Trout and Tony Conigliaro ?

The first player from the Angels franchise (they were the California Angels at the time) to wear the number twenty-five was Bob Perry .

Jim Thome wore number twenty-five since he first came up with the Cleveland Indians making him the franchise record holder for that particular number ( Mike Garcia is second).
