Juan Pierre Retires From The Game

Juan Pierre acknowledged through his twitter account that he was retiring from the game on Friday.

Pierre was drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the 1998 June Amateur Draft out of the University of South Alabama and made his major league debut in 2000. He would go on to play with six organizations in 14 major league seasons.

The speedy left handed hitting outfielder led the National League in games played (162) in five straight seasons from 2003-2007, he recorded 200 hits or more in a season four times, led the league in stolen bases three times, while totaling 614 in his career.  Pierre was also apart of the 2003 Florida Marlins who took down the mighty New York Yankees to win the crown.

Thank you Juan Pierre for the memories and congrats on a great career.
