Cody Joseph Ross is a professional baseball player from the United States of America who plays in the outfield as a center fielder. Baseball began in high school for Ross however he chose not to go to college and instead decided to join the Detroit Tigers in 2003. A fantastic season later, Ross was named as the Detroit Tigers Minor League Player of the Year and in 2005, he was traded out to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Ross was part of the minor league structure with the Dodgers and his most memorable moment came in 2006 when he hit a grand slam homer to break a tie and bring home a three run win. Despite his average performances, he ended 2006 with two games with 7 RBIs and a game with three homers. After being traded out to the Cincinnati Reds, Ross was sent out to the Florida Marlins after 2 games.
After barely getting to play in the Majors with the Tigers, the Dodgers or the Reds, the Marlins gave him a long run with 91 games in 2006, getting a .212 batting average out of Ross but the most memorable moment was his performance in September 2006 when he hit two 2-run home runs as well as a 3-run homer in the same month as his previous big game for the Dodgers.
In 2007, Ross played 66 games with 173 at-bats at a batting average of .335 with 12 homers and 39 RBI. In 2008, Ross appeared in a total of 145 games with 461 at-bats and had a batting average of .260 and 73 RBI
Having played just 76 games in the 2009 season, Ross had a batting average of .274 with 48 RBI. Reports suggest that Ross might sign for the Atlanta Braves soon although these rumours have yet to receive any confirmation from either party.
