Wiki

Jorge Posada (born August 17, 1971) is a Major League Baseball player with the New York Yankees, the only Major League team he has played for. He served as the Yankees primary catcher for most of his career, though following off-season knee surgery, he was moved to designated hitter for the 2011 season. He is a switch hitter, and has been on five All-Star teams over his 16-year career.

He is the only Major League catcher to ever have hit .330 or better with 40 doubles, 20 home runs, and 90 RBIs in a single season. Posada and Yogi Berra are the only Yankees catchers to hit 30 home runs in a season. Since 2000, Posada has had more runs batted in, home runs, and hits than any other catcher in baseball. Posada is one of the "Core Four" Yankees.

Posada was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico to a Cuban father and a Dominican mother, and attended the Alejandrino High School in San Juan, where he participated in basketball, volleyball, track, and baseball. As a baseball player in high school, he was named an All-Star player at shortstop in the 1988-89 season.
