World Series Champs As of this writing, the New York Yankees were the last team to win the World Series, and the numbers of the starting lineup are 2, 18, 25, 13, 20, 55, 24, 33, and 53. The average (mean) of those numbers is 27.0.

The numbers are substitutes for names and are not counts or measures of anything.

They are at the nominal level of measurement, and it makes no sense to compute the average (mean) of them.
