Googled this:

In 1929, the New York Yankees were planning to start the season with uniform numbers on the back of the jersey. The Indians also planned to wear numbers in this fashion. The Yankees were rained out on opening day, April 16, while the Indians played, making Cleveland the first MLB franchise to wear numbers on the back. The Yankees debuted their numbered jerseys two days after, April 18.[3] By the mid-1930s, all MLB teams wore numbers;

I see Bots Nekola listed as a Yankee pitcher. He came to the Yankees in June of 1929, so your program could be from either the July 15-17 series or the August 14-17 series. I couldn't decipher the persons scoring.

It's the Aug 15 game.

Rice hit a HR in the first for the Tigers.

Whitehall shut out the Yankees with a 2 hitter.

Ruth was 0-2 with 2 walks, Gehrig 0-4.

You are looking at the wrong column. The numbers to the right of the Yankees names are noted as uniform numbers.
