Happy Trails Geoff Jenkins

2009 Topps Chrome #13 Geoff Jenkins (Refractor)

Today Geoff Jenkins will retire as a Milwaukee Brewer. Jenkins spent 10 seasons with the Brewers but to me he will always be a member of the 2008 World Champion Philadelphia Phillies.

Jenkins struggled most of the 2008 season and would eventually cede his side of a Right Field platoon to an emerging star, Jayson Werth.

But, Geoff Jenkins disappointing season was totally turned around by a single at bat.

Jenkins last career at bat was a pinch hit double in the 6th inning of game 5 of the 2008 world Series. He would then come around to score a critical run to help the Phils to a 4-3 victory in that decisive 5th game.

Geoff Jenkins has not picked up a bat in a Major League game since since that night in October of 2008. Despite his 200+ career Home Runs he has been unable to find a home since the end of the Phils incredible 2008 season, today he is hanging up the spikes.
