Jimmy Rollins

After rejoining the Phillies in a special advisor role in 2019, Jimmy Rollins was added to the Phillies broadcast team for a select number of games on NBC Sports Philadelphia. He has also served as an in-studio analyst for Major League Baseball’s postseason coverage on TBS since 2016.

The Phillies’ all-time leader in hits (2,306) and doubles (479), Jimmy was a second-round draft selection by the club in 1996. He made his major league debut in September 2000 and tripled in his first major league at-bat. Jimmy would go on to make three All-Star teams (2001-02, 2005), win four Gold Glove Awards (2007-09, 2012) and win a Silver Slugger Award (2007), all as a member of the Phillies over 15 seasons. In 2007, he reached the pinnacle of individual achievement in baseball by being voted the National League Most Valuable Player by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. That year, the switch-hitter played in all 162 games and batted .296 with 38 doubles, 20 triples, 30 home runs, 94 RBI, 41 stolen bases and 139 runs scored, leading the NL in games, at-bats (716), triples and runs.

In 2014, his final season with the club, Jimmy was the co-winner (along with Paul Konerko) of the prestigious Roberto Clemente Award. The award recognizes Major League Baseball players who best represent the game of baseball through positive contributions on and off the field, including sportsmanship and community involvement. Throughout his career in Philadelphia, Jimmy participated in numerous charitable endeavors, including ‘J-Roll’s Readers’ club as chairman of the Philadelphia Reads program, Easter Seals, the Arthritis Foundation and “J-Roll’s Aces,” a program that provided Phillies tickets, T-shirts and concessions to disadvantaged students.

Following his tenure in Philadelphia, Jimmy spent one season each with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox. He finished his career with a .264 batting average, 511 doubles, 115 triples, 231 home runs, 936 RBI and 470 stolen bases in 2,275 games. His .983 fielding percentage ranks third-best in major league history among shortstops (min. 1,000 games) behind Omar Vizquel (.985) and Troy Tulowitzki (.985) and he ranks sixth all-time in games played at shortstop (2,227).

Jimmy ranked in the top three in the NL in fielding percentage in 11 of the 13 seasons that he qualified, including leading the league four times. Jimmy was born in Alameda, Calif., and currently lives in Encino, Calif., with his wife Johari and their three daughters, Camryn, Logan and Brie.
