Cafecito: Former Yankee Catcher Jorge Posada Gives Back

Four-time World Series champion and former Yankees catcher Jorge Posada sat down for a Cafecito with host Feliciano Garcia. Posada said that while playing in Major League Baseball, he never touched steroids since he didn't know much about them and was worried about whether they would affect his ability to have children.

Born in Puerto Rico to Cuban and Dominican parents, Posada found pride in his heritage, but also on how much his family worked. When his son was born with craniosynostosis, he started the Jorge Posada Foundation to help other parents find treatment for their children.

"The biggest thing is your culture - you have to keep it," Posada said about representing Latinos on the baseball diamond. "You have to make sure that wherever you go you are presented well as a Latin player. You gotta do everything possible to make sure that everyone understands where you are coming from."
