Players of the Day for Friday, February 28, 2011
Buster Posey picked up right where he left off last season for the World Champion San Francisco Giants. In the first game of Spring Training, Posey led the Giants to a 7-6 win over Arizona, going 2-for-3 with a double, two RBI and a run scored.
Posey, who batted .305 with 18 homers and 67 RBI in 108 games after a call-up in May, provided a big bat in the middle of the Giants' suspect lineup that propelled the team to World Series glory. Posey was named NL Rookie of the Year by various organizations and is viewed as one of the top three or four catchers in the league already.
There were no American league games played on Friday.
