View Full Version : #42 not usable

As some of you may know #42 belonged to Jackie Robinson of the Brooklyn Dodger(not L.A.) and was retired by all teams in 1997 and the only player to date who was allowed to keep that number is Mariano Rivera. I noticed that you are not able to use this number in mlb 2k9. It doesn't bothers me. I think 2k did right on retiring the number in the video game. What do you guys think?

Not to sound like a jerk, but if it's supposed to be a realistic MLB game wouldn't you expect that the number would be retired.

It wasn't on earlier versions.

It should be retired, if they want to be a legitimate mlb simulation.

I love realistic games but with how many things in this game that are unrealistic this seems to stick out. I guess im happy they put that in there. Now if only they can get the 40 man rosters in september going!
