Time to hang up the pinstripes. Jorge Posada, with five World Series trophies by his side, said his tearful goodbyes to the Yankees on Tuesday after spending his whole career as a Bronx Bomber. “I could never wear another uniform,” said the 40-year-old Posada. “I will forever be a Yankee.” The five-time All-Star catcher ended his career in baseball with 275 home runs and a .273 batting average. Posada, along with retired teammates Bernie Williams and Andy Pettitte and active Yankees Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera, led his team to four World Series wins in the late 1990s.
