Phillies All-Star shortstop Jimmy Rollins and his fiance were Photographed by Playboy for the June issue. I got an advanced look at the feature, which brings out J-Roll’s sense of style and humor quite well. The currently slumping Phils lead-off man and his wife shot the feature over the winter in Florida. They model fashions from designers such as Perry Ellis, French Connection and Nautica.
Rollins, of course, had to un-retire from the predicting business. He went back to old form, making yet another bold prediction. “The Fall Classic? I see our boys vs. the Yankees,” J-Roll says. “They spent all that money. They’ve got to be there. We’ve got a title to defend, so we’re going to be there.”
The magazine will hit newsstands tomorrow.
