Posada planning to be guest instructor this spring

From The Associated Press down in Tampa…

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Jorge Posada is ready to put on the pinstripes at spring training this year as a guest instructor for the New York Yankees.

“They haven’t asked me yet, but they said they are going to,” Posada said on Friday. “I’ll be around.”

The former All-Star catcher is a coach this weekend at the Yankees’ fantasy camp for women. It marked his first time in a New York uniform since retiring after the 2011 season.

The 41-year-old Posada got a big smile when asked about being in a coaching role around longtime teammates Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera.

“I’ll be bossing them around … telling them to run, and all that stuff,” Posada said with a laugh. “I miss certain things about the game. You’re always going to miss certain things. I, obviously, miss my teammates the most.”

Posada doesn’t have any current plans to become a full-time pro coach.

“Not right now,” Posada said. “Maybe later. I like coaching, I like helping out, but I don’t see myself doing it right now.”

Posada hit .273 with 275 homers and 1,065 RBIs over a 17-year career — all with the Yankees — that included being on the postseason roster for four World Series titles.

“No comeback for me,” said Posada, who looked fit wearing Yankees pinstripe uniform pants and a pullover jacket. “I’m good with what I’m doing, and I was happy with the decision I made last year around this time. I’m enjoying the family.”

Posada announced his retirement with tears in his eyes at a news conference last January.

“I love the game of baseball,” Posada said. “I just couldn’t play at that level anymore.”

Posada stayed busy during his first year away from the game.

“We went to London, went to see the Olympics. We were there for 16 days,” Posada said. “Did a lot of things I wasn’t able to do, like ski and stuff like that with the family. Really enjoyed the time this (past) summer with the family.”

Posada worked with Mickey Rivers to coach a team Friday that included Posada’s wife Laura and Jennifer Steinbrenner Swindal, the daughter of former Yankees owner George Steinbrenner. He also spent time talking with New York managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner.

    Nice to hear from Jorge. 17 years have flown by. Glad he’s enjoying his retirement and glad I was able to be there for his last stand at Yankee Stadium – and a triumphant one, it was.

  6. J. Alfred Prufrock January 19th, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    lol tucker.

    Awh, RIP, Earl – sweet dreams!

  10. Rich in NJ January 19th, 2013 at 5:22 pm

    Unretire.

  11. Rich in NJ January 19th, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    Failing unretirement, I would like to see Posada succeed Girardi.

  12. jmills January 19th, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    Rich, I’m thinking about it.

  13. joeman January 19th, 2013 at 5:30 pm

    Blake, that pic was ever so precious. Might as well show your true colours! :D

  20. Tar January 19th, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    Hey Blake, thanks for the response on the last thread. But I don’t see any Lohud banner. I did just try Chrome and it appears you can refresh by tapping twice on the tabs thingy. That’s a whole lot better than scrolling down every time.

    BTW great BB game on ESPN right now Orange vs Cardinals. Which reminds me haven’t seen Señor Wave Your Hat in quite some time. Hope he comes back soon.

  21. blake January 19th, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    Tar,

    Maybe that’s just on the iPhone5 I dunno….good day for the heels

    Attractive web site. I looked up Frascati’s as my father in law’s father worked there while in the 1920s. He remembers heading in to check out his dad operating there and features a number of minor stories to tell. His father, Thomas John Luff, was the Head Vegetable Chef there from the 1920s. For those who have any additional details with regard to the restaurant, that could be terrific. Thanks, Lena
