Former Phillies shortstop and icon Jimmy Rollins officially retired as a Phillie on Saturday (May 4th) and was honored before the game against the Washington Nationals. The Phils gifted Rollins with a custom painted glove showing some of his career highlights as well as a cool tribute video. Many former Phils players and coaches including Charlie Manuel and Shane Victorino were in attendance to celebrate an amazing career by JRoll. Chase Utley and Ryan Howard also made video appearances to congratulate Jimmy on a great career.
I look forward to the day in a couple years when Jimmy get inducted onto the Phillies Wall of Fame. I also hope that a Baseball Hall of Fame induction and retirement of his number 11 by the Phils also occurs. Congrats on an amazing career, JRoll!
Talk to you soon,
