BIOGRAPHY

Buster Posey is a Major League Baseball catcher and first baseman who currently plays for the San Francisco Giants.

Buster played baseball throughout his childhood, breaking records and gaining widespread recognition from an early age. For his pitching success during high school, he was named the Georgia Gatorade Player of the Year, the Louisville Slugger State Player of the Year, an EA Sports All-American, and a Baseball America All-American. Despite being chosen by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim during the 2005 MLB draft, he chose to attend college instead. While at Florida State, he played college baseball and was subsequently named a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American. In 2008, Buster was drafted by the San Francisco Giants after being named the best catcher available in the draft by "Baseball America." In 2012, Buster played in his first Major League Baseball All-Star Game, scoring a run for his team. He has since been named the National League MVP by the Baseball Writers' Association of America, the National League Comeback Player of the Year, and the National League Player of the week.
