Steve Pearce, 2018 World Series MVP, Has Retired

Steve Pearce, MVP of the 2018 World Series, has retired, after 13 seasons.

It has been a good run. I have 10 years [of MLB service time] in there. Right now, I am officially retired.

Pearce hit three home runs, leading the Red Sox over the Dodgers in five games. Pearce was 4-for-12, with a double, three home runs, eight RBI, four walks, and five runs scored.

Pearce debuted with the Pirates and spent time with the Astros, as well as all five American League East teams (the sixth player to do so).
