All-Star Center Fielder & World Series Champion Announces Retirement After 14 Seasons

Former All-Star center fielder and 2016 World Series champion Dexter Fowler has announced his retirement after 14 seasons in the MLB.

Fowler, who announced the news on his personal Twitter account, did not appear in the majors last season after signing a minor-league deal with the Toronto Blue Jays.

The thirty-six-year-old made his lone All-Star Game appearance and also won the World Series with the Chicago Cubs in 2016.

He will always be remembered for when he crushed a leadoff home run for the Cubs in Game 7 of the World Series, the only player in MLB history to ever do so.

Fowler will finish his great career with a .259/.358/.417 triple-slash line, 127 home runs, 517 RBIs, 149 stolen bases and 817 runs scored over 1,460 total games.

Since 2008 when he first entered the league, Fowler has played for the Colorado Rockies (6 years), Houston Astros (1 year), Chicago Cubs (2 years), St. Louis Cardinals (4 years) and the Los Angeles Angels (1 year).
