J-Roll Presented with Painted Glove at Citizens Bank Park Celebration

The Philadelphia Phillies honored Rollins during a pre-game ceremony on May 4 at Citizens Bank Park, presenting him with this one-of-a-kind painting as recognition of his MVP, World Champions Phillies career.

"J-Roll", the three-time All-Star, won the 2007 NL MVP award. He won four NL Gold Glove Awards and a Silver Slugger award over 15 seasons in Philly and was part of their 2008 Championship team.
Jimmy's 2014 Roberto Clemente award is referenced on the glove art, too.
For this painting commission, the Phillies sourced a Mizuno Pro baseball glove just like the one Jimmy used at Shortstop.
Creating the Rollins Glove Artwork
The painting was created with acrylic paints and on an Mizuno Pro infielders glove. The design included hand-lettering of text, Phillies logo and portrait painting.
Baseball Artwork for the Philadelphia Phillies
This is my 5th painting for the Phillies. Previously I painted catcher "Chooch" Ruiz, a glove for Ryan Howard, which was also presented in an on-field ceremony at Citizens Bank Park, Shane Victorino, and painted base for Jim Thome.
Thanks to the Phillies for partnering with me to create this special gift and here's to Jimmy enjoying this keepsake artwork for years to come.
