Buster Posey becomes 1st ex-player to join SF Giants ownership group

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Three-time World Series champion Buster Posey is now a member of the San Francisco Giants ownership group, the team announced Wednesday in a news release. Posey becomes the first former player to join the organization as a principal partner and member of the Board of Directors.

Posey, 35, will be the youngest member of the ownership group, the release said. The former catcher retired in 2021 after spending his entire 12-year career with the Giants — making seven All-Star teams and winning NL MVP honors in 2012.

Earlier this week, the Giants announced General Manager Scott Harris left the organization to be the next President of Baseball Operations with the Detroit Tigers.

With 14 games left in the 2022 regular season, San Francisco (71-77) is 9.5 games back behind the Philadelphia Phillies for the third and final NL Wild Card spot. The Giants are in Colorado to face the Rockies for a 5:40 p.m. start on Wednesday.
