Buster Posey’s wife Kristen Posey is a lucky woman.
Buster Posey’s wife Kristen Posey was his high school sweetheart, and the two wed in January of 2009. After tearing it up at Florida State, and making a quick mark in the majors, the couple has stayed together. Kristen Posey gave birth to the couple’s first children, twins (son Lee and daughter Addison) on August 15, 2011, while Buster was recuperating from the gnarly ankle injury suffered in a home plate collision (which ultimately changed the rules for blocking the plate). The timing worked out well, as Posey told the San Francisco Chronicle,
“This is definitely the good thing to come out of this [injury]. Obviously, our kids aren’t going to remember that. It’s more for Kristen and more for myself to be able to share those first few weeks and months with them. Even though I wanted to be with the team, there’s no other way I would have been able to experience what I did with them. In a way, I’m thankful for that.”
Buster Posey leads the Giants into the playoffs trying to capture his third ring in his young career. The best hitting catcher in baseball (yep, that’s right Yadier Molina,… Buster’s the best), has the team on the brink of celebrating yet again. Not a better guy to root for.
