With Trey and I each turning 24 this week, we decided to rank the best players to ever wear the number 24 during their MLB careers. Turns out, there are a lot of greats who have donned this number, including some that are ranked in the top players of all time. While I thought our lists would be pretty similar, there's one controversial player who causes us to have a bit of a debate on how we put together our rankings.
