Jacoby McCabe Ellsbury (first name pronounced /dʒəˈkoʊbi/ jə-koh-bee); born September 11, 1983 in Madras, Oregon) is an American professional baseball center fielder with the Boston Red Sox of Major League Baseball. Ellsbury attended Madras High School where he was a 4-year letterman in football and baseball, and played varsity basketball his Sophomore through Senior year. Ellsbury's career batting average of .567, and being caught stealing only once are both Oregon High School State Records. He also holds the Oregon record for Stolen Bases in a game with 7. Ellsbury was first drafted by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in the 23rd round of the 2002 MLB Draft but did not sign. He was then drafted by Boston in 2005, 23rd overall, after three years at Oregon State University.

Ellsbury is officially enrolled as a member of the Colorado River Indian Tribes[1] and is the first Native American of Navajo descent to reach the Major Leagues.[2] As of 2008, he was one of only three active non-Hispanic Native American players in Major League Baseball, with the others being Kyle Lohse of the St. Louis Cardinals and Joba Chamberlain of the New York Yankees.[citation needed] Ellsbury is English and German on his paternal side.[3]
