CHICAGO -- These days, Jorge Posada IV is a little older and a little wiser, but still every bit of the ham he was the first time he participated in the All-Star pregame introductions one year ago.

Jorge IV was only 2 1/2 years old in 2002, and perhaps a little unsure of himself. This year, the 3 1/2-year-old son of the American League All-Star starting catcher still needed a little prompting to run out onto the field when his dad's name was called. But as soon as he got into his groove, there was no stopping him.

Little Jorge, dressed head to toe in a Yankees uniform, wearing the No. 20 and two streaks of eye black under his eyes, high-fived his dad's AL teammates in one of the more heart-tugging moments of the evening.

Even with more than 100 people on the field for the pregame ceremonies, the pint-sized future Major Leaguer stole the show.
