Leopoldo Jesús Posada Hernández (born April 15, 1936) is a former Major League Baseball outfielder. He played for the Kansas City Athletics from 1960 through 1962. After his retirement as a player, he served as a minor league manager.



Posada was a cyclist before beginning his baseball career. He represented Cuba in cycling at the Pan American Games and the Central American and Caribbean Games.[1]


Posada was signed as an amateur free agent by the Milwaukee Braves in 1954. In 1956, he was selected by the Kansas City Athletics from the Braves in the minor league draft.

Posada played for the Athletics from 1960 to 1962. On August 3, 1962, he was traded by the Athletics with Dale Willis and Bill Kunkel to Braves for Orlando Peña. Posada continued to play in the minor leagues until 1969.

In 1975, Posada served as manager of the Class A Fort Lauderdale Yankees[2] of the Florida State League.[3]


Posada's brother, Jorge Posada, Sr., was a scout for the Colorado Rockies. His nephew, Jorge Posada, Jr., is a retired catcher who played with the New York Yankees for 17 years.[4]
