"We are excited to have Eric on board as our head baseball coach. He brings experience from many levels of baseball that will be beneficial for our players to draw from. I can't wait to see the staff he assembles and how our players will learn from a former Major Leaguer about the game," said Partridge in the West Alabama Athletics press release.

"It feels like Home! The game of baseball has blessed me in so many ways and given me many great memories and opportunities through the years. I am so thankful that God has now opened the door for me to be a part of the rich tradition of the University of West Alabama baseball program," said Dubose in the UWA announcement.

Dubose, the former head coach of American Christian Academy in Tuscaloosa, played 12 seasons professionally, including five with the Baltimore Orioles. Dubose posted a 5.21 ERA over 188.1 innings.

Dubose also spent time as an assistant at UWA.

Dubose played collegiately at Mississippi State, earning All-American and All-SEC honors. Dubose was inducted into the Mississippi State's Ron Polk Ring of Honor in 2020.

The Tigers went 21-26 and 14-16 in conference games last season.
