I think a lot of us knew this was coming. SF Giants catcher Buster Posey will announce his retirement today (Thursday). The 34-year-old has been in the organization since 2008 and served as one of the main pieces for San Francisco's 3 championships in 5 years. Buster is the only player still on the Giants who played on all three title-winning teams.
Buster took time off during the 2020 season because of the coronavirus-shortened season to help care for prematurely born adopted twin girls. Buster hinted during the playoffs he might be done, saying he was ready to embrace more family time with four young children at home.
"I'm definitely just going to take some time with my wife, talk with her, be able to be a full-time dad of four kids for the first time in a while,'' Posey said. "Yeah, just kind of take it slow and see how things progress.''
Thank You Buster Posey!!
