Born in Cuba in 1936, he is the uncle of Jorge Posada. During the 1958-59 winter he played for Almendares as a teammate of Tommy Lasorda. The book The Pride of Havana says that Posada "came of age in the 1960-61 winter" in Cuban baseball.
A story in the August 9, 2003 New York Times says that Raul Mondesi used Posada as a hitting coach early and late in his career.
