The 10 Best Catchers In New York Yankees History


5. Jorge Posada

There are many who say that Jorge Posada isn’t a great catcher. Those same people will rave about how he’s not even in the same league as Mike Piazza of the New York Mets and Jason Varitek of the Red Sox.

Those people are downright wrong.

Posada called David Wells’ perfect game in 1998, is a switch hitter with tons of power, and has been the center of attention in some of the biggest games in Yankees’ history. Like his double that tied up Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS and set up Aaron Boone’s home run that sent the Yankees to the World Series.

Posada hit 275 career home runs and had a career slash line of .273/.374/.474 and was a five-time All-Star.

On August 22, 2015, the Yankees retired his number forever securing his place as one of the greatest catchers in team history.
