Mets history site, no retired numbers

Was doing some research the other night on MLB teams' "official" Hall of Fames and naturally the Mets were one of the sights I checked out.

Well the HOF list is pretty up to date (no one since Agee in 2002 though) but apparantly someone fell asleep when doing the retired numbers! The only one listed is 42! D'OH!

Interestingly enough one might consider Monument Park in Yankee Stadium a Yankee HOF, well their website fails to list those enshrined

Anyone know of any other source where I can find complete lists of various team HOFs?

mbtn.net has all retired numbers, at least as of two years ago.

I remember a trivia question somewhere some time ago, asking who were the only two players in the four major sports to have their number retired by three different teams.

I think one was Reggie Jackson? (And that could be wrong.) I never found out the other one.

This site seems pretty up to date. I only see Reggie retired by the Yankees and A's (only teams that have any reason to retire the number).

Nolan Ryan is one. (Texas, Houston, California)

I still don't know the other (it might not be a baseball player).

edit: Interesting site; their opinion on numbers that "should" be retired includes the Mets' Eddie Kranepool.

They're wrong on Kranepool.

Yeah, but was just looking what each of the official team sites had

BTW, anyone who considers themself even a casual Met fan should know 37, 14 and 41. Or at least wonder what those numbers mean whenever visiting Shea
