GD Star Rating
PhotosJorge Posada's wife Laura Posada, 7.4 out of 10 based on 342 ratings
- UPDATE: On May 14, 2011, Jorge Posada was demoted to 9th in the batting order, the first time in 12 years he's batted this low (oddly enough, 12 years to the day). After originally being publicly understanding of his demotion, Jorge later removed himself from the lineup. Yankees GM Brian Cashman stated that this was his decision, and not injury related.
After Ken Rosenthal reported that his sources said he was fighting a back injury, it appears his source is Laura Posada's Twitter account. Laura's Facebook and Twitter accounts stated that he had to come out of the lineup due to lower back stiffness.
Jorge loves being a Yankee > anything. He's trying his best to help his team win. Today, due to back stiffness he wasn't able to do that.
We will keep you posted if this gets uglier,... but I'm sure the New York press in the middle of a losing streak will just let this one slide,... right?
- Time Together: The two were married January 21, 2000, and have two children together: son Jorge Jr., and daughter Paulina.
- Resume: This lady is impressive to say the very least. The former model and actress from Puerto Rico, is also a published author, a lawyer, and a co-founder of the Jorge Posada foundation. This charitable organization was founded to help raise awareness, and money for a cure and families affected by the disease called craniosyntosis. When someone is born with this condition, the bones in their skull fuse together too early, not allowing the brain to grow properly. This can cause abnormally shaped heads, seizures and blindness in people with the condition. Jorge Jr. is one of those afflicted by craniosytosis and has undergone multiple surgeries in an effort to correct and reverse the effects of the condition.
- Quote: Laura Posada was recently spotlighted in an E! True Hollywood Story about the life of a baseball player's wife. Leading up to the show, she did an an interview with the New York Daily News, and said
"People think that just because you're married to a baseball player, that you're dumb, that you're a gold digger, that you're an ex-stripper. That's not the way it is. I still haven't met that one girl. Most of the girls that I know, that are baseball wives, are super sweet girls. They're successful in their own right. I really hope that after people see this show, they realize that there's a lot more than just what people think baseball wives are."
Laura, if internet rumors are true, please let me introduce you to fellow Yankee wives Karen Burnett and Michelle Damon.
I kid, I kid. It's just rumors, folks.
