Eric DuBose (born May 15, 1976) is a retired Major League Baseball pitcher. He bats and throws left-handed and attended Mississippi State University. Currently, Dubose serves as a Director for East Coast Sox Baseball Organization, an elite nationally known showcase organization based out of southeast.
After tossing just 6 innings in 4 games in 2002, his first official year, DuBose looked to be a career minor leaguer for good. However, luckily for him, when the Baltimore Orioles needed a spot starter for a game against the Royals in May 2003, they recalled DuBose from Triple-A Ottawa and he did not disappoint, tossing 6 innings of 3-hit, 2-run ball. DuBose spent most of 2003 in the bullpen, though he was made a full-time starter in September. DuBose finished '03 with a 3-6 record and 3.79 ERA in 17 games.
Unfortunately for the Orioles' organization, DuBose took a step back as a full-time starter in 2004, compiling a 6.39 ERA in 14 games while allowing 12 home runs. In 2005 the struggles continued – DuBose was ineffective in 15 games, walking more batters than he struck out. After signing a minor league contract with the Colorado Rockies before the start of the 2007 season, DuBose was released on May 15, 2007.
DuBose signed with the Cleveland Indians in late May 2007, spending the season with the Buffalo Bisons of the International League. For the 2008 season, he played for the independent Bridgeport Bluefish of the Atlantic League before his contract was purchased by the Los Angeles Dodgers on August 3, 2008; he was assigned to Double-A Jacksonville. On August 27, he was promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas and became a free agent at the end of the season.

The Oakland Athletics (the A's) are a Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise based in Oakland, California. They play in the American League West division. The Athletics had played in Philadelphia from 1901 to 1954 and then Kansas City from 1955 to 1967 before moving to Oakland. Since the establishment of the Rule 4 Draft the Athletics have selected 77 players in the first round. Officially known as the "First-Year Player Draft", the Rule 4 Draft is MLB's primary mechanism for assigning players from high schools, colleges, and other amateur clubs to its franchises. The draft order is determined based on the previous season's standings, with the team possessing the worst record receiving the first pick. In addition, teams which lost free agents in the previous off-season may be awarded compensatory or supplementary picks.Of these 80 players, 36 have been pitchers, the most of any position; 27 of these were right-handed, while 9 were left-handed. Fifteen outfielders, including one center fielder, and 13 shortstops were selected. The A's have also drafted six catchers, five third basemen, four first basemen, and one second baseman in the first round. Additionally, 23 players came from high schools or universities in the A's home state of California, followed by 10 from Texas and Florida. They also drafted Ariel Prieto in 1995, who had defected from Cuba the year before. Prieto made his major league debut in 1995, one of 20 players in draft history to go directly to the majors without playing in the minor leagues.Three Athletics' first-round picks have won championships with the franchise. Reggie Jackson (1966) won World Series titles with the team in 1972, 1973, and 1974. Mark McGwire (1984) and Walt Weiss (1985) won with the 1989 championship team. Four A's first-round picks have gone on to win the Rookie of the Year Award: McGwire in 1987, Weiss in 1988, Ben Grieve (1994) in 1998, and Huston Street (2004) in 2005. Jackson also won a Most Valuable Player award in 1973, and Barry Zito (1999) won a Cy Young Award in 2002, making them the A's only picks to win these awards. Reggie Jackson, elected in 1993, is their only pick in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Although eligible McGwire has not been elected despite over 500 career home runs and briefly holding the single-season home run record (70). Some see McGwire's exclusion as a sign that the Hall is hesitant to elect players suspected of using performance-enhancing drugs as McGwire was suspected of steroid use (he later admitted his use in 2010). The Athletics have made nineteen selections in the supplemental round of the draft and have made the first overall selection once: in the first draft in 1965.The Athletics have failed to sign three first-round draft picks, although they did not receive a compensation pick for any of them. The first such player not signed was Pete Broberg in 1968. The A's also failed to sign both of their draft picks in 1979, Juan Bustabad and Mike Stenhouse. The Athletics have had ten compensatory picks overall since the first draft in 1965. These additional picks are provided when a team loses a particularly valuable free agent in the previous off-season, or, more recently, if a team fails to sign a draft pick from the previous year.Mississippi State Bulldogs baseball
