18 54 61 | Pirates pick up 61st win of season at San Francisco on night of Barry Bonds jersey retirement, August 11, 2018

The Pirates picked up their 61st win of the season on the night Bonds jersey was retired with the San Francisco Giants.

Again, the Bonds retirement came 18-days after his 54th birthday.

Baseball = 18 / 54; Bonds = 18 / 54
61, the 18th prime number

And don't forget the old home run record by Roger Maris, 61 in '61.

And to date, I still haven't seen a home team win when they retire the jersey of one of their players.  It would be interesting to go through history and see if it has ever happened.
