BRONX, N.Y. — On this date in 1990, the New York Yankees scored quite a pair during the MLB Draft. The club selected starting pitcher Andy Pettitte and infielder Jorge Posada. Yes, Posada was an infielder before he was a catcher.
The club took Pettitte during the 22nd round Posada in the 24th round. Those two were quite deep finds for the organization.
That year the team would take outfielder Carl Everett in the first round with the No. 10 overall pick.
The longtime batterymates helped produce five World Series titles in the Bronx.
