The Journey Home: My Life in Pinstripes by Jorge Posada

The Journey Home: My Life in Pinstripes

A good example of this type of lesson does not deal with baseball, but instead the chore of painting a wrought iron fence. If I associate my father with the odors of leather and tobacco, my mom reminds me of the mouthwatering cooking smells of arroz con frijoles negros, carne, and platanitos. Michelle was already there, and my father kissed her forehead as he passed her before taking his seat. With pitch-by-pitch recall, he looks back across the years, going inside friendships forged on the field and explaining how--as part of the Core Four alongside Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, and Mariano Rivera--he helped to reestablish the Yankees as a dynasty and win five World Series. We called out to him, and he slid his patio door open and rubbed the palms of his hands in his eyes. I sat there, silently praying again, asking God to keep those two women quiet.

I spent a lot of time with them both, until Papí Fello died when I was eight. The support and love shown by his Yankee teammates is illustrated as well and it makes for one of better parts of the story. The one I spent time in with my mom and sister had a lot of light and air and laughter in it. Offering a view from behind the mask unlike any other, Jorge discusses the key moments and plays that shaped teams and forged a legacy that came to define Yankee baseball for a generation. Having faith in myself is the most important ingredient to live to the fullest on the Earth. Along the way, she and her husband were also faced with heartbreaking decisions that neither had anticipated, as their dream of two children quickly grew when a larger group of siblings presented itself. Now, in this long-awaited memoir, Jorge Posada details his journey to home plate, sharing a remarkable, generational account of his journey from the ball fields of Puerto Rico to the House that Ruth built.

Reviews of “The Journey Home: My Life in Pinstripes” by Jorge Posada

The Journey Home: My Life in Pinstripes

My mother supported my baseball habit as much as my dad did, but they each had different limits. I was also surprised that despite the phenomenal success the Yankees enjoyed during his tenure he seemed disappointed that they didn't win it all every year! Because of the lessons he taught me—about the game, about how to approach life—I had the foundation I needed to succeed in attaining that goal. Complete with sixteen pages of color photographs, this touching and earnest memoir is a testament to hard work, brotherhood, and the generational gift of baseball between fathers and sons. For seventeen seasons, the name Jorge Posada was synonymous with New York Yankees baseball. Honestly, they shouldn't be expected me to witness every highlight of their performance. As a good sports autobiography should, he discusses his life outside of sports in detail and shows how he became the success he turned out to be.

The Journey Home: My Life in Pinstripes

Jorge mentioned in the beginning of his book that he had the best vantage point or the best seat in one of the greatest eras of Yankee history playing catcher. A fixture behind home plate throughout the Yankees biggest successes, Jorge became the Yankees' star catcher almost immediately upon his arrival, and in the years that followed, his accomplishments, work ethic, and leadership established him as one of the greatest Yankees ever to put on the uniform. At the center is the deep bond he shares with his father and namesake, Jorge Sr, who escaped Cuba and would eventually mold his son to be a ball player, honing his talent and instilling in him the drive necessary to fulfill his childhood dream of playing in the Bronx. I could hold my own against them, and playing against kids who were more physically mature helped me. My father came back, pushing a wheelbarrow.

The Journey Home: My Life in Pinstripes

For seventeen seasons, the name Jorge Posada was synonymous with New York Yankees baseball. Practice, train, practice, and train and never stop because perfection doesn't existed. I also enjoyed learning more about some of the other players from his point of view, such as his friendship with Jeter and Torre. He took responsibility for some of his famous problems in getting along with others and was more than generous in saying they had their own way of looking at things and admitting their viewpoints were equally valid. Jorge Posada was a key member of the recent New York Yankees success that resulted in five World Series championships and two additional American League pennants between 1996 and 2009.
