One of the best base-stealers in Marlins history, Juan Pierre began his career with the Colorado Rockies, leading the NL in Stolen Bases in 2001.  A year later, the speedy Outfielder was traded to the Marlins, where he became their leadoff hitter and continued the swipe bases at will.

In his first season in Florida, Pierre led the NL in SB with 65, had 204 Hits, and batted a healthy .305.  Pierre was instrumental in the Marlins winning the 2003 World Series, and he batted .333 over the series.  This was the last time that Pierre was a champion, but not his final year as an impactful baseball player.  

Pierre led the NL in Hits (221) and Triples (12), and he batted .326 in 2004.  His stats dropped in 2005, but he was still decent and productive, stealing over 40 Bases in 2004 and 2005.  The Marlins traded him for three players to the Cubs after 2005, but he returned to Miami for one final season in 2013, but he was not the same player and retired after the season.  With the Marlins, he batted .295 with 682 Hits and 190 Stolen Bases.
