    Sterling Hitchcock complained his way off the team but apparently doesn't mind being called upon this time around.

    I doubt that the losing team was all distraught or anything, but they would have guys mostly all in their 40's playing and they truly played to win...and played more than the two innings they play now. I think it was Whitey Ford pitching one time and the game was pretty intense...I have to find where I read this, but the fooling around they do today wasn't really the way it was.
    I used to love watching those OTD games as a kid. And yes, I always rooted for the Yankee old timers to beat their opponents, but I don't know if they were as serious as I was. Especially with many of those games being umpired by Max Patkin, the so-called Clown Prince of Baseball.

    Fun times there. My favorite moment was Roy White's single through the right side. His stance from the left side was exactly as it was 40 years ago...that was a cool time warp.
    Let the kids play.

    Probably still too soon for him and continuing to take it easy and spending time with his family.

    From 2012:
    In a private moment after his press conference, I asked Jorge Posada if he thinks he will be at Old Timers Day this year. "I don't think this year," Posada said. "You've got to take it easy." Posada, 40, says he has no plans on what he is going to do now. The only thing he knows for sure he is going to spend a lot of time with his family. Posada has no real plans of how he could eventually return to baseball, but he seems to be interested in doing so one day.

    It was great seeing El Duque! He had a blast! First he pitched.. then he played short. The smile didn't leave his face the whole afternoon.
