We are all Buster Posey: 28 photos of fans wearing No. 28

(Big League Stew)

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Buster Posey heard the fans and he presumably saw them in a Cactus League game Friday, his first action for the San Francisco Giants since breaking his ankle last year. Thousands roared whenever his name was called, and dozens wore jerseys, shirseys and other T-shirts with Posey's No. 28 and likeness. Right-hander Matt Cain pointed out how neat the reaction was, saying that fans were happy just to see his teammate on the field again. There seemed to be a Buster Posey in every section, in every corner of Scottsdale Stadium.

Therefore, we present: The Posey Poseurs in Pictures!
