Jermaine Dye (born January 28, 1974 in Vacaville, California) is a right fielder in Major League Baseball for the Chicago White Sox. Dye has also played with the Atlanta Braves (1996), Kansas City Royals (1997-2001), and Oakland Athletics (2001-04), before joining the White Sox prior to the 2005 season. He bats and throws right-handed.
Dye attended Cosumnes River College in Sacramento, California, and was selected by Atlanta in the 17th round of the 1993 amateur draft. He went to high school at Will C. Wood High School in Vacaville.
In nine major league seasons, Dye is a career .272 hitter with 208 home runs and 611 RBI in 1039 games. He made the American League All-Star team in 2000. After a breakout 1999 season with the Kansas City Royals, Dye looked like an emerging superstar. Dye was traded to the Oakland Athletics in 2001, where he continued to play well. However, in the 2001 American League Division Series, Dye fouled a ball off his leg and shattered his fibia. Dye struggled to return to form after the injury, and he would wait for few months to recover.
Dye was named MVP of the 2005 World Series. During the Series he batted .438, with one home run and three RBIs. His RBI single off of Houston Astros closer Brad Lidge gave the Chicago White Sox a 1-0 Game 4 victory, completing the Series sweep.
