Juan Pierre, who sat out last season after struggling for the Marlins in 2013, has officially decided to retire at age 37.

Pierre was a singles-hitting, base-stealing machine and the center fielder finishes his 14-year career with a .295 batting average, 614 steals, and nearly as many walks (464) as strikeouts (479) with just 18 homers.

He led the league in stolen bases three times and hits twice, but also led the league in caught stealing seven times and in total outs made three times while earning nearly $60 million.
