During the 15 seasons Rollins spent in Philadelphia, he led the Phillies to five consecutive division titles, two National League pennants and, of course, the 2008 World Series title. He also is the franchise's all-time hits leader with 2,306, as well as a three-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove Award winner.
