Posada retired from baseball at the end of last season with a heartfelt goodbye to the organization who he thanked God for being a part of. He had spent 17 years with the Yankees, the entirety of his MLB career. During his time in the league he was a five-time All-Star, four-time World Series champion, and five-time Silver Slugger Award winner.
