Pierrick Lemestre has played for the French national team and also works as a player/coach for the Lions de Savigny-sur-Orge in Division Elite. During the 2002 World University Championship, Lemestre was 5 for 10 while splitting catching duties with Boris Marche. He was France's lone hitter above .300 in the event, posting a better average than future major leaguers such as Rickie Weeks, Conor Jackson, Shane Costa, Aaron Hill, Michael Aubrey, Carlos Quentin, Eric Patterson and Sam Fuld in addition to top Japanese and Cuban prospects.

In the 2003 European Championship, Lemestre went 7 for 18 with a walk, leading France in average. In the 2007 European Championship, he was a pitcher, tossing 7 1/3 scoreless innings and saving a game, posting France's lowest ERA. For Savigny in 2007, he hit .266/.326/.354 and went 7-3 with a save and a 3.01 ERA. The next year, he went 9-6 with a 2.51 ERA, walking 19 in 107 2/3 IP and batting .342/.409/.541 with 28 RBI in 30 games. He played left field, right field, catcher and third base in addition to pitching.

He was a pitcher for France in the 2013 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers, held in Jupiter, FL in September of 2012. He lost France's game against South Africa. Coming in in the top of the 10th after the game had been suspended by rain the previous day, he pitched a scoreless inning but France failed to score after loading the bases with one out in the bottom of the 9th, and the South Africans got to him for three runs in the 11th for a 5-2 win.

He is sometimes mistakenly called Patrick Lemestre.
