Bobby JenksRobert Scott Jenks was born on March 14, 1981, in Mission Hills, CA.  As a rookie, big righthander Bobby Jenks emerged out of Ozzie Guillen's bullpen to become a valuable reliever for the White Sox in 2005, helping the team to the World Series. Though he saved just six games in the regular season, his 95+ fastball helped him notch four in the post-season, as the Sox captured their first title in 88 years. He saved 41 games the next season and continued to be stingy about home runs - he allowed just 10 longballs in his first 160 innings pitched. Originally a starter in the Angels organization, Jenks was snagged by the White Sox off waivers after the 2004 season.


In 2005, Bobby Jenks became the first rookie in major-league history to earn the save in the clinching game of the World Series in Game Four at Houston with a scoreless ninth inning.
