Indians Retired Numbers

With more than a century's worth of history, the Indians have had a long list of stars. From the dead-ball era all the way to modern times, Cleveland's annals are filled with hard throwers, prolific sluggers and barrier breakers.

An exclusive list of players and managers have earned the right to have their jersey number retired by the Indians and put on display at the team's ballpark. Cleveland does not have any specific criteria for retiring a number, but instead examines careers on a case-by-case basis, with entry into the National Baseball Hall of Fame serving as a key component for consideration.
