The Mercury News reported that the San Francisco Giants catcher reiterated his standpoint when he announced that he would not be partaking in the 2020 Major League Baseball season.
Buster and Kristen became first-time parents when they welcomed their twins in 2011. The twins — son, Lee Dempsey Posey, and daughter, Addison Lynn Posey — were born on Sunday, August 14.
According to the site, Buster made the announcement in a Twitter video that saw him explain that he and his wife, Kristen Posey, recently adopted identical twin girls who were born prematurely. While stating that the newborns were required to continue their stay in the neonatal intensive care unit for a period, Buster said:
“After much discussion with my wife and doctors and a decision that I’ve wrestled with quite a bit since I knew that this adoption was on the table, I’ve decided to opt out of the 2020 baseball season.”
It would be recalled that Buster and Kristen became first-time parents when they welcomed their twins in 2011. As at the time, NBC Sports revealed that the twins — son, Lee Dempsey Posey, and daughter, Addison Lynn Posey — were born on Sunday, August 14.
While Lee was born at 1:52 a.m. and weighed five pounds, 12 ounces, Addison arrived two minutes later, weighing six pounds 3 ounces. Kristen and Buster, who have been together since high school, jumped the broom in 2009.
Heavy disclosed that the Georgia-held ceremony became sweeter when the then-newlyweds enjoyed their first dance — as man and wife — to the sounds of Frank Sinatra’s “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.”
The couple’s life couldn’t be any better as SI.com divulged that they take turns watching each other’s favorite shows when hanging out at home.
Buster would watch “The Bachelorette” with Kristen before she would return the favor by watching his favorite show, “Swamp People” on the History Channel — with the MLB star.
Since his announcement, fans have made it clear that they respect Buster’s decision to focus on his family at this time and are excited for his new bundles of joy.
