On January 7, 2012 — 2012 – Media in New York, NY report that C Jorge Posada is about to announce his retirement after a brilliant 17-season career during which he caught over 1,500 games and won four World Series titles. His final season was difficult, however, as he lost the starting catching job to Russell Martin and hit only .235 as the team’s designated hitter. His retirement will become official on January 24th, when he calls a press conference at New Yankee Stadium.
