Chris Young (outfielder)

Christopher Brandon Young (born September 5, 1983 in Houston, Texas) is a center fielder for the Arizona Diamondbacks. In 2007, he became the first rookie in Major League history to hit 30 home runs and steal 25 bases.

Young began his baseball career at St. Thomas More elementary/middle school before moving on and graduating from national powerhouse Bellaire High School (Bellaire, Texas). He broke his arm in the state playoffs during his senior year attempting to catch a fly ball hit by Elkins High School's Chad Huffman (currently an outfielder in the San Diego Padres organization).

Drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 16th round of the 2001 MLB Draft, Young was traded to the Diamondbacks with Orlando Hernández and Luis Vizcaíno for Javier Vázquez and cash after the 2005 season.

Young began showing his potential quickly in the minor leagues. In 2003, he was an Appalachian League All-Star outfielder. In 2005, he was a Baseball America 1st team Minor League All-Star outfielder and the Chicago White Sox Minor League Player of the Year. In 2006, he was a Triple-A All-Star outfielder and Baseball America 2nd team Minor League All-Star outfielder.

Young made his major league debut on August 18, 2006, and began the 2007 season as the Diamondbacks everyday center fielder. On August 17, 2007, against the Atlanta Braves, Young hit his 23rd home run of the year, setting a new Diamondbacks rookie record. He also became the 8th rookie to hit 20 home runs and steal 20 bases.

For the season, his 27 stolen bases led all NL rookies (13th in the NL overall), and his 32 home runs were enough for 2nd for NL rookies (behind Ryan Braun and tied for 10th overall). Among other statistical accomplishments, Young finished 2nd among NL rookies in extra base hits (64) and at bats (569), 3rd in runs (85), and 5th in runs batted in (68). He also batted .237 with a .295 on-base percentage, and led NL rookies by striking out 141 times.

Young was a unanimous selection to the 2007 Topps Major League Rookie All-Star Team as a result of the 49th annual Topps balloting of Major League managers. He finished fourth (10 points) in the vote for the 2007 NL Sporting News Rookie of the Year Award by 488 major league players and 30 managers, losing to Braun (128 points). He also lost out to Braun in the competition for the 2007 Baseball America Rookie of the Year Award, and in the Baseball Prospectus 2007 Internet Baseball NL Rookie of the Year Award, in which he came in 4th with 8 first place votes (versus 555 for Braun).

In 2008, Chris Young started 157 games in Center field. He finished the year with 85 runs, 85 RBI and led the Arizona Diamondbacks with 14 stolen bases. His batting average improved to .248, but he hit less home runs, ending the year with 22.

Christopher Alan (Chris) Young (born June 12, 1985 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee) is an American country music artist. In 2006, he was declared the winner of the television program Nashville Star, a singing competition which airs on the USA Networks. After winning, he was signed to RCA Records Nashville, releasing his self-titled debut album that year. It produced two chart singles on the Hot Country Songs charts for him in "Drinkin' Me Lonely" and "You're Gonna Love Me". A second album, The Dashboard, is slated for a 2009 release, and it includes the singles "Voices" and "Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song)".

Young was born in Murfreesboro, Tennessee on June 12, 1985. His grandfather, Richard Yates, was a performer on the Louisiana Hayride. From a young age, Young showed interest in music while performing in various children's theater productions, and by his high school years, he began playing in local clubs, even self-releasing two independent albums.

While attending college, Young continued to tour, performing more than 150 shows a year. At a gig in Arlington, Texas, he was encouraged by a fan to try out for Nashville Star, a television talent show on the USA Networks; after auditioning in Houston, Texas, he entered the show, and was declared the winner in 2006. His win also earned him a contract with RCA Records Nashville, and late that year, he released his debut single, "Drinkin' Me Lonely". This song, which peaked at #42 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, served as the first single to his self-titled debut album, which was produced by Buddy Cannon. The album's second single, "You're Gonna Love Me", peaked at #48.

In May 2008, Young released his third single, entitled "Voices". At the Country Music Association Music Fest in June of that year, he promoted the single by e-mailing it to visitors at his Music Fest booth. On the chart week of August 16, 2008, "Voices" became Young's first Top 40 country hit on the Billboard charts. Following it is his fourth chart single, "Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song)".

All albums were released on RCA Nashville.
