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

The most recognizable Detroit Tiger to wear the number twenty-five was probably Norm Cash (who wore it from 1960 through 1974), but did you know that Hall of Famer Larry Doby also wore it during his single season with Detroit?

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).
