Former Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Geoff Jenkins will formally announce his retirement from baseball in a press conference this Friday (July 9) at Miller Park. Jenkins will later throw out the first pitch prior to that night’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Jenkins was drafted by the Brewers, made his Major League debut in Milwaukee and established many team marks on the field.
Jenkins played 11 Major League seasons, 10 of which came as a member of the Brewers. He debuted with the Brewers on April 28, 1998 and was named a National League All-Star in 2003.
Jenkins ranks among the Brewers all-time leaders in nearly every offensive statistical category, including home runs (2nd-212), slugging percentage (2nd-.496), RBI (4th-2188), extra base hits (4th-521), doubles (4th,287), at bats (5th-4407), runs (5th-661), hits (5th-1221), games (6th-1234), on base percentage (6th-.347), batting average (T7th-.277) and triples (8th-22).
