The 2008 inductees to the Baseball Hall of Fame get announced today, so it’s only appropriate that we here at UmpBump announce the latest inductee into our own little Hall of Fame we call “Hot Baseball Wives.”

Our honoree this time is All-Star catcher and “True Yankee” Jorge Posada’s wife Laura, pictured here helping a rather uncomfortable looking Regis Philbin discover that all his moving parts are still quite functional after all these years:


Lauramarried Jorge in 2000. Before marriage, she had been a fitness model and minor actress in Puerto Rico, before later hitting the books to become an attorney. Laura also made waves after coming to the US by posing in a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition wearing nothing but strategically placed paint:


Laura’s most high profile activity since coming to the US, however has been her active role as co-founder of the Jorge Posada Foundation. Jorge and Laura’s first child, son Jorge Jr., suffers from craniosynostosis, a condition in which the bones in a child’s skull fuse too early, before the brain has had enough time to grow. The painful affliction results in an abnormally shaped skull, and causes serious complications, and Jorge Jr. has already had numerous surgeries to help correct the condition. Laura and Jorge co-founded they named after their son in order to raise money to find a cure for thecondition and to help support needy families with children afflicted by the disease.

Congratulations Laura! For combining beauty, brains, and compassion, you’ve more than earned the honor of Hot Baseball Wife.

    Dag, yo. That is one CUTE baseball baby.

    Though obviously Jorge’s been giving her tips on her pitcher’s stare.
