James Calvin "Jimmy" Rollins (born November 27, 1978 in Oakland, California), nicknamed "J-Roll", is an All-Star and former MVP shortstop for the Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball's National League.

Though Rollins has developed into a five-tool player during his career due to significant increases in his power hitting, he is perhaps best known for his baserunning skills. He stole at least 20 bases every season from 2001 to 2009, with a career high of 47 in 2008. In this respect, Rollins emulates his childhood baseball hero, Rickey Henderson.
