What is in a players #? I guess it depends on the sport really. With basketball for my daughter it is the uniform that fits her. Since she is on the petite side she tends to get whatever is handed to her. And that is fine she doesn't really care. When it comes to her soccer uniform she is much more concerned about her #. For many years she had the same # 14, but when we switched clubs this past year she had to change #s. It was hard at first for her to get used to. But, now she loves her new #.
