Heart of a Lion
October 6, 2011 – Jorge Posada has been a Yankees fan favorite and one of the fiercest competitors in the game for the past 16 seasons. And, in the wake of what many have called the most difficult season of his career, Posada has batted .400 this postseason (coming into tonight’s game). In the biggest game of the year, Posada has two singles.
So, for all of the naysayers, Posada has shown that while he may not have the same ability he once had, he still has the heart of a lion. Posada’s last hit was off Tigers flame thrower Max Sherzer, who tossed the Yankees designated hitter a 98 mph fastball. Posada lined the Scherzer’s offering to left field for his second hit of the game.
Hits like that one are the reason Posada is — and will remain — an icon in New York City.
