Alvarez switching jersey from #17 to #24
After finishing his rookie season wearing #17 and batting .256 with 16 home runs and 64 RBI, Pedro Alvarez will be donning a new uniform in 2011.
Bucs Insider tweeted that Alvarez will be wearing #24 –The uniform that Delwyn Young wore in 2010 (Young was non-tendered by the Bucs). It’s also the same number that Barry Bonds wore for his seven seasons in Pittsburgh.
I think its safe to say that Pedro will make a much bigger impact in that uniform.
