How Derek Jeter could have helped you win Mega Millions
Just think: if Yankee fans bought their Mega Millions tickets based on their favorite players, they just might be winners today. Here's a look at the winning Mega Millions numbers and the famous Yankee uniform number they correlate to:
2 – Derek Jeter (1995-present)
4 – Lou Gehrig (1929-1939)
23 – Ralph Terry (1959-1964)
38 – Johnny Blanchard (1955-1965)
46 - Andy Pettitte (1995-2003, 2007-2010)
23 (Mega Ball) - Don Mattingly (1984-1995)
Though, even if you had $640 million dollars, you still couldn't buy the Yankees--the recent sale of the Dodgers may have pushed the franchise's price tag to around $4 billion. But you could probably get your hands on some decent memorabilia.
