What a weekend for the Yankees.

The Bronx Bombers retired the numbers of both Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte this weekend at Yankee Stadium before games against the Cleveland Indians.

It was a set of ceremonies that only the Yankees could produce: Several former great players and legends were present including Scott Brosius, David Cone, Joe Torre, Bernie Williams, Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, and Andy Pettitte.

Posada delivered a classy speech in which he thanked the fans and everyone who helped him get to this point. In perhaps the most classy moment of the speech, Posada wished Indians player Mike Aviles his best. Aviles' daughter is battling Cancer. Posada is no stranger to health issues with his children, as his son has battled craniosynostosis.

If you missed Posada's speech, here it is:

On the field, Posada is one of the best Yankee catchers in history, rivaled only by Yogi Berra and Thurman Munson. He was a part of five championship teams. He hit .273 across 17 career seasons.
