Fans of the New York Yankees know Jorge Posada for his hitting and catching skills. However, the Core Four member has another great skill up his sleeve as revealed by the Instagram post of his wife Laura.

The post indicates Jorge Posada has a budding comedic talent that he revealed while traveling with his wife Laura. In the clip, the Yankees great was seen seated on an airplane with the couple’s tiny pet dog in his lap. When Laura asks “Can I pet it?” Feigning misunderstanding, Jorge Posada responds that it’s not former Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte on his lap.


Of course, no one could ever confuse the two former teammates in real life despite the close bond they shared both on and off the field during their Yankees days.

When Laura repeats her request, this time Jose Posada plays it straight and grants permission to shower their furry friend with affection. Though clearly a pre-planned bit, Posada’s deadpan delivery shows impeccable comedic timing that hints at untapped potential should he ever pursue acting or comedy.

The lighthearted airplane antics hint at a silly side of the former catcher that fans rarely saw during his playing career. However, the Instagram audience indicates an audience receptive to more humorous content should Posada decide to fully explore his comedic chops beyond social media. For now, the video provides a glimpse of amusement from a former Yankee known for his intensity behind the plate.

It appears that Jorge Posada has been honing his acting skills or exploring his comedic talents. Whichever path he’s pursuing, it’s clear that he has a natural aptitude for it.

Posada’s wife, Laura, posted a video on her Instagram account, featuring the former New York Yankees catcher seated inside an airplane with their cute little pet dog resting on his lap.

In the video, Laura humorously asks, “Can I pet it?” in reference to their furry companion. Instead, Jorge Posada pretends to hear, “Andy Pettitte,” and quickly clarifies that he is not the former Yankees flamethrower.

Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte: The incredible teammates

Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte have shared numerous remarkable moments, both on the baseball field and in their personal lives. However, there’s no mistaking one for the other when they’re seen in person.

The interaction was evidently prearranged, but it remained humorous and endearing. Jorge Posada’s ability to maintain a straight face in the video is truly remarkable. Perhaps, he should consider pursuing a career in acting or comedy at some point.


Both Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte played crucial roles in the Yankees‘ triumphs during their three consecutive championships. His astute game-calling and exceptional defensive abilities were a perfect match for Pettitte’s pinpoint pitching.

Even without the two, the ‘Core Four’ would not exist. While Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte may not have earned their Hall of Fame entry as of now, the careers they’ve built are undeniably legendary.
