2017 Adrian Athletics Hall of Fame Profile: Versatile Chris Dubbs of Baseball Also Finding Success as Prep Coach

ADRIAN, Mich.--Chris Dubbs '98, an Adrian resident, will be one of five individuals--plus the 2007-08 NCAA men's hockey team--to be the latest class of inductees to be enshrined in the Adrian College Athletics Hall of Fame. The Adrian College Athletic Department, in conjunction with the Office of Alumni Relations, will honor them in a dinner ceremony on Friday (6 p.m.) in the Tobias Center of Ritchie Hall as part of Homecoming Weekend festivities on-campus.

Dubbs batted .321 in a 115-game career for the Bulldogs baseball team from 1994 to 1997, playing third base and seeing action on the mound. He also had a career .454 on-base percentage. He also is still the school record holder with 13 saves for a career.

A three-year starter, Chris was the 1996 team co-most valuable player and a 1997 All-Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association First Team designated hitter after career bests of .383 batting average and .461 slugging percentage. He also paced the conference with seven saves that season, which still stands as a school record. The team captain earned second-team all-region as a senior.

Today, Chris is a mathematics intervention teacher in the Madison School District and coaches the high school varsity baseball team. He is 97-84-1 since taking over for the Trojans in 2010, and led the team to the 2015 Division 3 district championship over conference-rival Clinton to end a 41-year drought for that distinction. In addition, he has been selected the district coach of the year two of the last three seasons.

Chris has stayed active in baseball since his college graduation, serving as a youth coach for the Adrian Lookouts since 2008. He twice won district coach of the year in 2015 and 2016. He also serves on the Adrian Diamond Club as a board member.

Chris is married to his wife, Michelle, and they have a son, Aaron (17). He graduated from Adrian College with a bachelor of arts degree in mathematics and earth science.

The Hall was established in 1969 to recognize former athletes and coaches who have distinguished themselves in the field of intercollegiate athletics at Adrian College either by their performance on athletic teams during their undergraduate years, by their strong leadership in their profession, or their meritorious efforts on behalf of the athletic program at the College.
