11-11-11 The great #11′s of DC sports

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the eleventh year, let us remember the greats who have worn #11 as part of Washington D.C. teams. The argument can be made that #11 is the most prolific number in D.C. annals — worn by two Hall of Famers, retired by two teams and currently worn by a face of the franchise.


Elvin Hayes – Washington Bullets 1973-1981 (Hall of Fame)


Mike Gartner – Washington Capitals 1979-1989 (Hall of Fame)


Mark Rypein – Washington Redskins 1986-1993 (Super Bowl XXVI MVP)

Today, there is a great #11 who is still active


Ryan Zimmerman – Washington Nationals
