The 2012 NL MVP and two-time World Series Champion provided $10,000 worth of equipment and supplies made by Louisville Slugger. In an interview with the Albany Herald, Posey said, “For winning the MVP, they give you a choice of $10,000 or that amount in equipment, and I just thought, ‘What better place to give that to than Lee County High School?’ (Helping out) when I can is something, honestly, I think about a lot. It’s such a great baseball program and setting, and it was so good to me, that I want to make sure the future guys who come through there have the same experience or better.”
Trojans head coach Rob Williams, who coached Posey from 2002 to 2005 before he became a part of the Giants said he was “speechless” when the 25-year-old called to give him the news and remarked, “He’s done things for us before — like given the program money for our summer camp while he was in the minors to buy equipment or sent us cases of bats from spring training once he got called up — but I couldn’t believe it when he told me to get out my Louisville Slugger catalogue and get whatever I needed.”
