40-Year-Old Jorge Posada Plays Second Base

With the Yankees beating the A's 22-8 in the top of the ninth - they did hit three grand slams, after all - Joe Girardi found a way to involve Jorge Posada. He involved Jorge Posada by having him play second base. It was, not surprisingly, Posada's first-ever appearance at second in the major leagues, although it is worth noting that he was a semi-regular second baseman with A-ball Oneonta in 1991. That's practically yesterday!

And wouldn't you know it, but the ball found the new guy, just like they say. You can watch the highlight here, or you can skip ahead for the best part.
