Early on Tuesday, Dexter Fowler, a 14-year MLB veteran, announced his retirement from baseball.
The longtime outfielder played with the Colorado Rockies, Houston Astros, Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals, and Los Angeles Angels.
He recently was in the Toronto Blue Jays organization, having signed a minor league deal with the team.
But after 14 seasons, Fowler has decided to call it a career.
And it certainly was a solid career.
He was an All-Star in 2016 and helped guide the Cubs to their curse-breaking World Series title, their first since 1908.
On Twitter, MLB Network posted a graphic outlining everything Fowler did in his career and each of his accomplishments.

Perhaps one of Fowler’s most memorable moments was his leadoff home run in Game 7 of the World Series against the Cleveland Guardians (then Indians).
That home run was the first ever leadoff blast in a Game 7.
He was commonly referred to as “Daddy Long Legs,” thanks to his speed.
The veteran outfielder had a career total of 82 triples, which is the most among active players at the time of his retirement.
For his career, the 36-year-old posted a WAR of 19.4 and amassed a total of 1,306 hits.
He also hit for a lifetime average of .259, popped 127 home runs, stole 149 bases, and had an OPS of .775.
He was a part of several great teams with the Rockies, Cubs, and Cardinals, helping lead each team to the postseason at least once during his tenure with those clubs.
Needless to say, Fowler accomplished quite a bit during his career.NEXT: The Angels Have A Pair Of New Sluggers To Look Forward To
