Career

He was drafted directly out of high school, but chose to go to college instead. He went on to study at Florida State University where he played shortstop for the baseball team his freshman year. He was later moved to catcher. By 2008, he was widely considered the best catcher available in the draft pool.

Buster was drafted by the San Francisco Giants, and has played for the team since then. He was the National League Rookie of the Year in 2010, the National League Comeback Player of the Year in 2012, and the National League MVP in 2012.

Buster won three World Series and was a 7-time All star during his time with the Giants.

Buster opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19.

Contracts and Earnings

In March 2013, Buster signed a nine year, $159 million contract with the Giants. Between June 2017 and June 2018, Buster earned $25 million between salary and endorsements, which made him one of the highest paid athletes in the world.

By skipping or shortening the final two seasons of his career, partly due to the COVID pandemic, Buster Posey left $30 million in potential earnings on the table with the Giants.

BodyArmor Deal

Buster was an early investor in the sports drink company BodyArmor. Shortly before Posey announced his retirement, Coca-Cola acquired BODYARMOR for $5.6 billion.

Posey likely earned at least somewhere in the mid-to-high eight figures as part of his investment, and it's possible he surpassed $100 million.

SF Giants Ownership

In September 2022 the Giants announced that Buster had bought a piece of the team. He was the 31st person to be allowed to invest in the Giants and the first former player in the ownership group. The size of his stake was not revealed but at the time of his acquisition the Giants were valued at $3.5 billion. So a 1% stake would have cost $35 million.

Personal Life

Buster and his wife Kristen are high school sweethearts. They married in 2009. As of this writing they have four children.

Real Estate

In April 2013 Buster and Kristen paid a little under $5 million for a large mansion in the town of Lafayette, California. They sold this home in March 2022 for $9.28 million. They actually sold the home with a lease-back agreement that allows them to continue living there until the family moves to Georgia.

In 2016 the Poseys paid $1.6 million for a 105-acre property in a town called Oroville, Ca in Butte County, roughly 150 miles northeast of San Francisco. They listed this property for sale in May 2022 for $3.9 million. The property features a lake, two creeks, a 33,00 square-foot primary house and a 4,800 square-foot barn which was built by the Poseys. The barn is both an event and recreational space with game rooms and sleeping area for five.
