- The Cubs' retired numbers collection includes Greg Maddux, whose #31 is also retired on the Atlanta Braves. The Cubs also retired #31 in honor of Fergie Jenkins.
- The Reds retired the numbers of two non-players, including managers Fred Hutchinson (#1) and Sparky Anderson (#10). They also retired Willard Hershberger's #5 for two seasons (1940 and 1941) following his tragic death.
- The Astros retired #34 in honor of Nolan Ryan in 1996, the same as the Rangers and four years after the Angels retired Ryan's #30. This makes Ryan the only player whose uniform is retired on three separate teams.
- Hank Aaron, whose #44 is retired as a Brewer as well as a Brave, posted only 0.4 rWAR during his time as a member of the Brew Crew. What the Hammer means to the city of Milwaukee, of course, defies quantification.
- The Pirates retired #1 in honor of manager Billy Meyer in 1954.
- While Rogers Hornsby never wore a number, the Cardinals honor his uniform alongside the numbers that St. Louis has retired, and thus qualifies in this list. They also retired #85—the highest of all retired numbers that a player, coach or manager might wear on a ball field—in honor of late owner August Busch.
