Jorge Posada will be fitted for pinstripes again this spring, just not the way he has been in the past. The former Yankee catching great will be a guest instructor down at the Yankees’ Spring Training complex in Tampa, Fla. Although the team hasn’t officially asked Posada, he said they will, and he couldn’t be more excited. Posada, who established long lasting relationships with his teammates, is looking forward to this new avenue of being involved with the game. “I’ll be bossing them around … telling them to run and all that stuff,” Posada said with a laugh. Even back to his playing days, Posada has always been talked about as being a future manager. His intensity and focus, plus the fact that he was a catcher, will no doubt lead him into coaching down the road in the majors. Perhaps this is the first step. Although the core-four is no more, fans will have another look at DJ, Andy, Mo and Jorgie in pinstripes this spring in Tampa. Who knows? Posada might even make an appearance in his first Old-Timer’s Day in the summer at the big ballpark in the Bronx.
PLAYERS: Jorge Posada
