Was Phillies legend Jimmy Rollins, MVP good enough for the Hall of Fame?

USA Today

With the 2022 Baseball Hall of Fame class set to be announced on Jan. 25, USA TODAY Sports is breaking down the candidacies of some of the top players on the ballot. 

Fans can fight about who was the "heart and soul" on the Philadelphia Phillies’ last World Series championship team, but shortstop Jimmy Rollins was a sparkplug and leader for a club that won five consecutive division championships and two National League pennants.

Making his debut on the Baseball Hall of Fame ballot in 2022, Rollins presents an interesting case – and one that voters will no doubt be closely analyzing in the years to come.

Rollins was an All-Star as a 22-year-old rookie in 2001 and developed into one of the game’s best all-around shortstops, winning four Gold Glove awards in his 17-year career.
