San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey will be opting out of the shortened 2020 MLB season.  He made the announcement on Friday July 10th.  He made this difficult decision not because he did not want to play baseball but because he and wife Kristen adopted twin girls who were born a week before his announcement.  Their twin daughters will be in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) for some time.  After speaking with the doctors and together as husband and wife Buster made the decision that was best for his family.  The San Francisco Giants organization supports his decision.  Family first.

Congratulations to the Posey family and we wish their daughters great health and that they are able to come home soon.
