Benintendi Switches Uniform Number From 40 To 16

He's worn uniform number sixteen in Little League, High School and as an Arkansas Razorback. Now, Red Sox left-fielder Andrew Benintendi will be reunited with his old number at the major-league level. Somehow, we believe Benintendi will look even faster by dropping twenty-four numbers off his back. The 22-year old had a breakout year in 2016 before getting injured—and is viewed...
