Jersey Number??[edit]

I seem to recall that Rocky wore the number 21 in at least part of his career in Cleveland. I'm looking for a program or photo for verification.Hx823 (talk) 20:49, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

You are correct. As a matter of fact, in Cleveland was #38 in 1955, 1956 and 1957, #6 in 1958 and 1959 and again as a coach from 1973 to 1978 and #21 in 1965 to 1967. He wore #18 in Kansas City and Chicago, #16 in Los Angeles, #29 in New York. He only wore #7 during his short tenure in Detroit. Jbaldas (talk) 04:08, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

why are these jersey numbers notable? If he had any of them retired with a club, mention it. Otherwise having it in the 3rd sentence of his lede is ridiculous. 71.67.102.161 (talk) 19:16, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Last game[edit]

The editor is right, Colavito's last game as listed in retrosheet is 9-28-68: [1]Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots← 21:55, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Why did he career spiral down so quickly in his early 30's? Was he chronically injured? 33 is not that old in baseball and he performance fell off a cliff. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.67.102.161 (talk) 19:17, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

broken sentence[edit]

" By age nine he was playing semipro baseball, and he dropped out of school at age 16 to pursue Major rules to wait until his school class graduated before signing, "

Doesn't tell what he went to pursue, and there's probably supposed to be some reference to a "Major League Baseball" rule here, so some words are missing. Someone more familiar with Colavito's early history should rewrite this. WHPratt (talk) 17:02, 19 June 2013 (UTC)
