Posey's jersey most popular in MLB

San Francisco, CA (WALB) -

It seems Buster Posey's #28 jersey is popular in a few more places than Leesburg and San Francisco.

Major League Baseball released the list of top selling jerseys Thursday, and the former Lee County Trojan tops the list.

Posey is ahead of Yankees closer Mariano Rivera and Cardinals C Yadier Molina.

Two Mets, 3B David Wright and P Matt Harvey, round out the top five.

It's understandable why Posey's jersey would pop up around the country.

He's the reigning NL MVP, the 2010 Rookie of the Year, and a two-time World Series champion for one of baseball's most popular franchises.
