Tomorrow New York Yankees fan will have to say goodbye to Jorge Posada, as according to MLB.com he will officially announce his retirement from baseball in a press conference at the Stadium.

Personally, saying goodbye to another piece of the infamous Yankees Core Four will numb my joy for the New York Giants trip to Super Bowl XLVI for a moment.

Ironically, when I think about it Posada actually personifies this Giants team because he played old school baseball.

Jorge was tougher than nails, and brought a go hard or go home attitude that subconsciously motivates others to win.

So now, after 17 seasons, of going to a Yankee game to see Posada and chant “Hip, Hip Jorge” has to come to an end tomorrow. Even knowing that this day was coming still doesn’t change the fact that feels way to soon.

For now, let us all wish Jorge Posada the best in his future endeavors but I hope he knows the joy he brought everyday to his fans, this city and the Yankee pinstripes. And say Thank You.

“Saying goodbye doesn’t mean anything. It’s the time we spent together that matters, not how we left it” – Trey Parker, creator of South Park.

 

Here is some vital information so you don’t miss Posada’s goodbye that is on the New York Yankees Official Press Release, which is also a great tribute to Posada’s career and a must read.
