SF Giants legend Buster Posey transferring again to Bay Space

It seems like SF Giants fans will be seeing more of Buster Posey at Oracle Park in the near future. After a brief period living in his home state of Georgia following his retirement following the 2021 season, the three-time World Series champion and future Hall of Fame catcher is currently in the process of moving back to the Bay Area, according to Andrew Baggarly to draw from The Athletic.

Buster Posey says he and his family will be moving to the Bay Area.

“As Posey explained, it took a year for the family to realize that the Bay Area had become a place where they truly felt at home,” Baggarly wrote. “Her two twins were born here. So last week they loaded the moving truck. This will give Posey the opportunity to watch more Giants games from the stands.”

The news was originally mentioned during former Giants manager and current Texas Rangers captain Bruce Bochy's KNBR radio interview Friday morning. When asked by the “Murph and Mac” show if he should stay in touch with Posey, Bochy said it had been a while since the two had spoken, but he had heard about Posey's plan to return to the Bay Area .

During his retirement press conference after the 2021 season, Posey and his wife Kristen expressed interest in moving back to Georgia with their four children to be closer to their families.

“We've been on one coast, they've been on another coast, actually since 2008 when I was drafted,” Posey told reporters at the time. “We’re definitely excited about that. Due to COVID, there is a niece we haven't met yet. Most of my family hasn't met our twin girls yet. And it's certainly like many families that are separated. COVID has made it harder for people to see each other. That’s why we’re excited to be closer to them and spend time with them.”

The family liquidated their local real estate, listing their six-bedroom Lafayette home for $7.5 million in March 2022 and scoring an off-market sale for $9.28 million. A month later, they followed suit, listing a 106-acre ranch in Oroville for $3.9 million.

The Poseys' recent change of heart led to the family selling their suburban Atlanta home for about $3.85 million last month, according to

Posey joined the Giants ownership group in September 2022 and serves as a principal partner on a six-member board. He's been involved in the decision-making process from afar – including frequent visits to San Francisco – but the full-time move west could mean Posey's influence on the organization becomes much greater.

Because he is a core part of the Giants organization, Posey has been a part of several offseason free agent recruiting efforts. Even after his retirement, he was remotely involved in the club's recent pursuit of Aaron Judge and Carlos Correa last offseason.

Buster Posey, 36, has been spotted on several occasions this season at Oracle Park, sitting in seats next to the SF Giants dugout along with chairman Greg Johnson.
