Geoff Jenkins’ solid baseball career is all but lost in the blur of offensive numbers typical of MLB’s “Steroid Era.” A longtime Brewers’ slugger, Jenkins cranked 221 home runs and had an OPS of .834. during his 11 seasons in the big leagues from 1998-2008.
Die-hard Phillies fans will remember Jenkins’ clutch double in the bottom of the sixth inning of the suspended Game 5 of the 2008 World Series. He came around to score on Jayson Werth’s single and helped Philadelphia end a 25-year championship drought.
Jenkins made more than $46 million in his big league career. He likely used some of that cash to buy the incredible Paradise Valley, Arizona home he put on sale recently for $4.295 million.
If you have the money, Jenkins’ home has just about everything you’d ever need, including a breakfast room, bar, home theater and game room. The exterior has a killer pool and a synthetic lawn that is perfect for the hot Arizona climate.
Highlights of Geoff Jenkins’ Arizona House:
• Kitchen with a built-in cappuccino machine
• Pool, outdoor kitchen and putting green
• 5 bedrooms, 8 baths
• 5.2 miles from Babe’s Cabaret
• 5.7 miles from Whole Foods
