I made this clock for a friend who is a big Yankee fan. There is a theme to the order of the names. I’ll bet that Yankee fans will know the logic.

Since all I know for sure is that Mantel was #7 (mainly from the Seinfeld episode), I have to assume the names are the numbers they wore on their jersey.

Wonder if you can make another clock using their position # as the clock number….....that is what I was thinking was the pattern at first.
1:00 pitcher
2:00 catcher
3:00 first base.
6:00 shortstop etc
I guess 10:00 would have to be a DH
11 middle reliever ?? and 12 as the closer (Mariano Rivera)?
Not a Yankee fan but cool none the less.
Well done.

Mike, for not being a Yankee fan you did well. Billy Martin was #1, Derek Jeter was #2 etc. As to your suggestion it is interesting that the original Yankee lineup with numbers were numbered as you suggested; pitcher #1, Catcher #2 etc.

Also I’ve used your line “Directions are just the Manufacturer’s opinion on how something should be assembled”. Pretty sure Tim Allen said that.
