Hip Hip Jorge! Posada Retires, A Yankee Forever

A Yankee Catcher for the Ages

(New York, NY) – After 17 years, 4 World Series titles, many divisional titles  and countless innings squatted behind home plate, #20 hangs up his cleats.  He was a five-time All-Star and retires with a .273 batting average, 1,065 runs batted in and 275 home runs in 1,829 games.  He was an integral part of the ‘Core Four’ alongside of Jeter, Mariano and Andy Pettitte, who retired last year.  His passion will be sorely missed.

  1. Not too many personified what it means to be a Yankee like Jorge did…

    Just heard the news that AJ is gone. Hip Hip….

  2. Thankful that I got to see him play in his final season as a Yankee. At first base in Cincinnati. lol. Not as a catcher…he will be missed.

  3. Hip Hip Jorge should have his #20 retired. Should be close but I think he will make it to Cooperstown or the baseball Hall of Fame.
