Geoff Jenkins will officially announce his retirement from MLB at a Friday press conference at Miller Park.
Jenkins played 10 seasons with the Brewers and played his final season in 2008 with the Phillies. Jenkins expressed his desire to retire as a Brewer and GM Doug Melvin and the organization found it fitting.
"Geoff indicated a desire to retire as a Brewer, and we were honored to accommodate the request," Melvin said in a statement. "He was drafted by the Brewers, made his Major League debut here and established many team marks on the field. As far as we’re concerned, Geoff will always be a part of the organization and we look forward to welcoming him home."
