Doug DeVore was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 12th round of the 1999 MLB Draft. He had just concluded his junior year at Indiana University, where he hit .360 with 19 HR and 65 RBIs. DeVore was also named to the All Big Ten team. His university time is of interest to me because I am an Indiana University graduate. Of course, I graduated from IU about seven years before DeVore was born.
Doug Devore made his major league debut on May 6, 2004. During 2004, he split his time between the Diamondbacks and Tucson of the PCL. He played 61 games for Tucson hitting .269 with 14 HR and 43 RBIs. With the Diamondbacks he appeared in 50 games hitting .224 with 3 HR and 13 RBIs. Devore did not play in the major leagues after 2004 but played in the minor leagues through 2006.
More recently he has been playing in the Columbus (Ohio) Men’s Senior Baseball League.
