CINCINNATI (AP) -Shortstop Davey Concepcion, the Big Red Machine's infield anchor and one of the best defensive players of his time, will have his No. 13 retired by the Cincinnati Reds.
The nine-time All-Star played for the Reds from 1970-88, winning five Gold Gloves.
The Reds will formally retire his number before a July 28 game against the Chicago Cubs.
No one has worn Concepcion's number since he retired. Only three others have worn No. 13 for Cincinnati - Eddie Miller in 1946, Eddie Pellagrini in 1952-53, and coach Ray Shore in 1966-67.
Concepcion is the ninth player or manager to have his number retired by the Reds. His No. 13 will be displayed behind home plate at Great American Ball Park along with the other retired numbers - manager Fred Hutchinson's No. 1, Johnny Bench's No. 5, Joe Morgan's No. 8, manager Sparky Anderson's No. 10, Ted Kluszewski's No. 18, Frank Robinson's No. 20 and Tony Perez's No. 24.
The Reds also display Jackie Robinson's No. 42, retired by baseball on the 50th anniversary of when he broke the sport's color barrier.
