After four World Series Championships, five All-Star ballots and 17 years in the Major Leagues, all with the New York Yankees, Jorge Posada announced his retirement today in New York with his wife and kids by his side.

In attendance were some of Posadas teammates over the years including CC Sabathia, Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter. The owner of the New York Yankees Hal Steinbrenner was in attendance also.

After last season the Yankees were not going to re-sign Posada to the clubhouse so Posada felt that he just didn’t want to pay for another team so he decided to retire a Yankee.

Posada ,40, finished with a .273 average, 275 home runs and 1,065 RBIs in 1,829 games. Posada is one of only five catchers in MLB history with 1,500 hits, 350 doubles, 275 homers and 1,000 RBIs. Posada finished with the 8th most home runs in Yankees history. The Majority think Jorge Posada will be voted into the MLB Hall of Fame.
