Bubba Derby is a right handed pitcher in the Milwaukee Brewers organization. He played collegiately at San Diego State, and was drafted in the 6th round of the 2015 MLB Draft by the Oakland A's. He later was a part of the big trade which sent slugger Khris Davis to the A's in 2016 and him to the Brewers organization.
Bubba had a strong 2017 season in which he posted a 7-1 record and a solid 3.26 ERA between AA and AAA, but his "strongest" performance came when he saved lives by acting as a human shield for two women in the midst of the Las Vegas shooting. Vegas Strong takes on a personal meaning for him, but for everyone else, he is a true hero!
On that note, he is promoting the 2018 Fan Fest, an event benefiting families dealing with cancer.
