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.
Washington Bullets 1973-1981 (Hall of Fame, 1978 NBA Champion, retired number )
Washington Capitals 1979-1989 (Hall of Fame, retired number)
Washington Redskins 1986-1993 (Super Bowl XXVI MVP)
Ryan Zimmerman – Washington Nationals (2019 World Series Champion, Most home runs in DC history)
