Action Figure Roster Now Includes Yankee Catcher, Jorge Posada
Friday, August 22, 2008

McFarlane Toys always kicks off the baseball season with the Opening Day launch at Toys 'R' Us stores across the country, and we've made a small swap involving those 2009 products.

Yankees catcher Jorge Posada is moving out of our New York Yankees 3-pack and into the MLB 23 lineup, replacing Melky Cabrera. It's the third version of Posada in our Sports Picks series, but the first showcasing him in his pinstriped catcher's gear.

The New York Yankees 3-pack is becoming a 2-pack, and will feature both Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez in fielding positions, complete with painted pinstripes never before available on these two figures.

Photos for both these series will be available in a few weeks - stay tuned to for more on this and other Sports Picks figures planned for 2009.
