After 17 great years playing for the New York Yankees, Jorge Posada announced his retirement this morning following a press conference at Yankee Stadium. His decision came after fans wondered if Jorge would play for another team when his contract was up. An emotional Jorge told a packed room of reporters, family, friends, and teammates that he could never play for another team.
“I could never wear another uniform,” said Posada. “Being a part of seven World Series and having five rings was something I never imagined, and being a part [of] it was just priceless. I will forever be a Yankee.”
