Buster Posey has led the San Francisco Giants to three World Series titles in his first five MLB seasons, winning the National League MVP trophy in 2012 when he won the batting title. The Giants rewarded Posey with an eight-year, $167 million contract for having that one amazing season. Buster is also a highly marketable player making at least $3.5 million annually from memorabilia and endorsement partners Nike, Toyota, DirecTV, Marucci and Rawlings.
On Saturday, the Giants are holding a “Buster Posey Day” at their stadium. Schedule is still unknown but we expect the Giants to show their gratitude for Posey by offering him a red carpet treatment.
Posey joined the Murph & Mac Show and said an interesting thing in the middle of his interview.
Murphy asked, “Do you have an interest being involved in Major League Baseball in any form going forward in your life?”
According to Posey, “Yeah I think so. I always want to be attached to the game, attached to the Giants.”
“Just kind of working through right now what that’s going to look like for myself and my family as far as the type of time commitment. But 100% want to stay in-tune with what’s going on in the game, the game I’ve loved since before I can remember.”
It is exciting to hear that the Giants are committed to keeping Posey involved in their future endeavors.
Buster Posey is a former professional baseball catcher who spent his entire Major League Baseball career in San Francisco. Buster retired from the sport in 2021 after 12 seasons.
With his combined success in four sports, Posey graduated high school with the class of 2007 from Leesburg, Georgia. He was signed by Florida State University and excelled with the bat and pitching. In 2008, he won the Golden Spikes Award and the Brooks Wallace Award for being a national player of the year in collegiate baseball. Posey was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in 2008 when they used their number five overall pick on him during the first round. In 2009, he made his MLB debut as one of their young stars along with Madison Bumgarner. The next year, he happened to be paired with then full-time catcher Bengie Molina when they were both called up to be rookies on June 11th, 2010. That day didn’t not come without problems; that same year, Tim Lincecum started a fight in his final game as a Giant. While we know who Tim Lincecum is now due to this fight, we don’t know who Posey was at the time because it was kept under wraps.
In his rookie year, Posey had a .305 batting average and hit 18 home runs. He caught every inning of the playoffs as the Giants won the 2010 World Series. In 2011, after he was severely injured in a collision with Scott Cousins at home plate, Posey missed most of the year.
Posey won the batting title in 2012, then went on to win two more World Series championships with the San Francisco Giants and was MVP in 2013. He also won three seasons of Rookie of the Year and three World Series before winning two Gold Gloves in 2016. During the 2019 MLB season, the Johnny Bench Award was renamed the Buster Posey Award, which honors college baseball’s top NCAA Division I catcher.
Posey was born in 1987 to his parents Demp and Tracy Posey in Leesburg, Georgia. He has a six-year-old sister, Willow, an uncle who is a Methodist minister and an aunt who is a camp minister for Duke University. His nickname “Buster” came from his father’s childhood nickname. The Atlanta Braves were one of the sports he liked playing growing up and also played football, soccer, and basketball as well.
As a junior at Lee County High School, Posey played shortstop, led the school to a 9-1 record, broke school records for batting average and runs batted in that year. His pitching accomplishments during his senior year included a 10-1 record while he went 1.53 ERA in 7 appearances. In December of his senior year, Posey’s MVP season culminated in the Georgia AAAA State Championship where Lee County was defeated by Henry County High School. Jason Heyward who later played in the major leagues accompanied him on their team along with future MLB player Colin Moran.
After his senior season, Brandon Posey was named the Georgia Gatorade Player of the Year, the Louisville Slugger State Player of the Year, an EA Sports All-American, and a Baseball America All-American. He graduated with a 3.94 grade point average in high school, fourth in his class of 302 students.
Posey played college baseball for Florida State Seminoles under coach Mike Martin. He was the first baseman as a freshman, starting all 65 games. He finished his freshman season with a .346 batting average, four home runs and 48 RBI. As a sophomore he moved to catching, where he hit an impressive .382 with three homers and 65 RBI. After one season of playing catcher, he had second place finisher in Johnny Bench Award voting thanks to Ed Easley.
On March 11, 2008, Posey hit .463 with 26 home runs and 93 RBI to lead the NCAA with 18 home runs along with the Golden Spikes Award for the National Player of the Year. On May 12, 2008, he became a pitcher during a 10–0 victory over Savannah State University and struck out both batters he faced that day without allowing a run. His 3-2 win led to being awarded the Dick Howser Trophy by baseball talent evaluators on December 30.
During Posey’s college offseason, he started at shortstop for the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox in 2006 and 2007, when they won their league championship. In 2007, he started playing catcher, which would be his only season with that position on the team. He was named an All-Star in both seasons.
Hunter Posey is a catcher for the San Francisco Giants. He was first drafted in the 50th round of the 2005 MLB Draft by the Los Angeles Angels and chose to go to college instead of signing with them. Posey was considered by Baseball America as the best catcher in the 2008 draft and was drafted fifth by the San Francisco Giants. On August 16, 2008, he signed with them. For the 2009 season, Baseball America ranked Hunter Posey second among prospects for his team with Madison Bumgarner being number one. Hunter has attended spring training for both teams, but he played for their Class A Advanced affiliate San Jose Giants in 2009 as well as an 80 game stint with their former AA affiliate that year since it was held at their stadium. In these 80 games he batted .326/.346/13 homeruns/63 RBIs with 23 doubles along with 95 hits and 85 strikeouts in 163 at-bats.
In early July, Posey was promoted to the Class AAA team of the Giants and he hit .321 in 35 games before being sent back to AA late in that month. In all he had a total of 42 hits, 8 doubles, 5 home runs and 22 RBIs during his time with the Grizzlies.
On September 2, 2009, Bengie Molina’s injury forced players to make some changes on the Giants. Catcher Buster Posey was called up and his first at-bat in the major leagues resulted in a strikeout. By September 11, 2009, he was pitching out of the bullpen. On September 19, 2009, Buster made his first hit as an MLB player against Jeff Weaver of the Dodgers. Buster had two hits in 17 at-bats for the Giants in 2009.
In 2010, Baseball America ranked Posey as the top prospect in the San Francisco Giants’ organization. After appearing in spring training again, he began that season with a .349 average with over 1/2 standard deviation, 31 runs scored and 60 hits (both near-league highs for the 2010 season).
