Juan Pierre Biography
Speedy left-handed leadoff hitter for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Juan Pierre was born August 14, 1977 in Mobile, Alabama.
In his seven years through 2006, Pierre has batted .303 with 12 home runs, 287 runs batted in, and 325 stolen bases in 1,007 games.Through 2006 he leads all active major league ballplayers in at bats per strikeout (16.51), and has led the National League in that category five of the past six years. Pierre went to high school at Alexandria Senior High School in Alexandria, Louisiana. Pierre is a lifelong Catholic who has appeared in the film series Champions of Faith which shows how faith has shaped the lives of major leaguers.Juan became a fan favorite early in his career because of his speed, durability, and work ethic. He led the National League in stolen bases in 2001 and 2003, and stole at least 45 bases each year from 2001 to 2006; because of his great speed and ability for contact hitting, many believe he is one of the best leadoff hitters in baseball. Critics are quick to point out that, in contrast to a prototypical leadoff hitter, Pierre rarely walks and must hit for a high average to sustain a high on-base percentage, which Pierre has not accomplished since 2004.
In 2007, Pierre led the majors in bunt hits (19). He also led the NL in games played (162) for the 5th straight year, and singles (164) for the second straight year, led the league in sacrifice hits (20), and had the lowest strikeout percentage in the NL (5.5%) and had the lowest range factor of all NL center fielders, 2.35. He was 2nd in the NL in stolen bases (64), 3rd in at bats (668) and plate appearances (729), 4th in hits (196), and 9th in triples (8).
Pierre was also mentioned in platinum recording artist, Jay-Z's song, Deja Vu.
