(When) Should Redhage's number be Retired?
I'm not one for claiming every man and his dog should have their numbers retired.
(I honestly don't think Knight would qualify, despite his great contribution.)
But I think there's a strong argument for Redhage's number to be retired.
380 games, 2nd only to Grace.
6 times MVP, equal to Grace.
4 championships, which until this season was equal with the best, and is still an astonishing effort.
He was a big part of the team for over a decade. He played a leading role in the 2010 & 14 championships, and his leadership and standing up in big games was important in 2016 & 17.
I remember the ceremony when Grace's was retired, but not exactly when it was. It was when they had the Heritage Game. I think in around 2008? Which would have been 2 or 3 years after he retired.
