Buster Posey, 35, shocked to retire relatively young with no injuries, joins the San Francisco Giants ownership group.

On the 22nd (Korea time), the San Francisco club announced on the official SNS that Forge has joined the San Francisco Baseball Association, which owns San Francisco.

He added that for the first time in the history of the San Francisco club, a player has become the owner of the club. Forge will now be directly involved in running the San Francisco club.

The exact amount of Forge’s investment is unknown. Dan Posey was said to have earned a total annual salary of 170 million dollars as a player and made huge profits from investments, etc.

Posey, who retired from playing last year, is a franchise star representing San Francisco. In 1371 games over 12 years, he batted .302, 158 home runs, and an OPS of 0.831.

As a representative catcher in the major leagues outside of San Francisco, he was named the National League Rookie of the Year in 2010 and the National League Most Valuable Player (MVP) in 2012.

He was also a 7-time All-Star, and won 4 Silver Sluggers and 1 Gold Glove. In 2012, when he won the MVP award, he also finished first in batting average.

San Francisco won the World Series three times during Posey’s career. Posey was in the glory days of San Francisco in the 2010s.

Posey, 34, batted .304 in 113 games last year, hitting 18 homers, 56 RBIs, and a .390 OPS and .889 on-base percentage. Retirement was unthinkable.

Posey has since announced the shocking retirement news. He chose life with his family, giving up $22 million this season, which was extremely practical.
