 Biographical Information
Geoff Jenkins played twelve seasons in the majors, mostly with the Milwaukee Brewers although he finished his career with the Philadelphia Phillies whom he joined as a free agent after the 2007 season. He hit 20+ home runs seven different times, with a high of 34 homers in 2000, a year in which he also stole 11 bases in 12 attempts.
Jenkins also played football in high school. He hit .355/.412/.774 with 3 home runs as Team USA's top hitter in the 1994 Baseball World Cup. He tied for 7th in the tourney in HR. Ermidelio Urrutia easily was the All-Star RF ahead of him.
Jenkins was named to the All-Star team in 2003 and led the National League in hit-by-pitch in 2005. However, he played largely in obscurity in Milwaukee, as the Brewers were not competitive during his time there. Through the 2013 season he had hit the third-most home runs in Brewer history, with 212, after Robin Yount's 251 and Prince Fielder's 230.
On April 13, 2008, Jenkins was put in the lead-off slot for the Phillies. At first he thought it was a joke, because he had never been in the lead-off position to start a game, but manager Charlie Manuel's two normal choices for lead-off were both nursing injuries, while Jenkins, although not fast and normally though of as a power hitter, is a player who usually maintains a good on-base percentage.
Jenkins' brother Brett Jenkins played in the minors from 1991 to 1998.
