Number: 37
Casey Stengel was a legend long before he accepted the job of being the first manager. He led the Yankees to seven World Series titles from 1949-1958. The "Old Professor" always had a memorable saying ready for the media, especially after the Amazin's continued to lose games. He once uttered the phrase, "Can't anybody here play this game?," which became the theme for '62 Mets.
