Jroll_espnmagJimmy Rollins is featured in the February 27th issue of ESPN the magazine which is on newsstands now.  You can also read the article online if you are an ESPN Insider.  The article, titled Ready to Roll, by Tim Keown takes a look at JRoll’s attempt at catching Joe DiMaggio’s historic hitting streak.

It’s a great look at Jimmy as a jovial, easy going guy who just loves to play baseball.  Jimmy grew up as a student of the game and while he might come off as a witty jokester there is usually some acumen in his humor.  JRoll also has a hell of a life going for him.  The article points out that Jimmy is 27, lives in a house fit for MTV cribs formerly owned by Boyz 2 Men singer Michael McCary, and recently signed a 5 year, 40$ million dollar deal.  He is having fun with it all, a Cali native with a house in both NJ and FL.  He recently purchased a Mercedes CLS 55 Carlsson, the only one of its kind in North America.
