The 27-year-old was born in Honduras and moved to Northern California as a teenager to pursue his dreams of becoming a professional baseball player.
He grew into a Giants fan and made his childhood dreams come true when San Francisco acquired him at the trade deadline in 2019.
I can say now I made one of my dreams come true and said I played for the San Francisco Giants

It didn’t take long for Dubón to become a fan favorite at Oracle Park as he wore the orange and black for 177 games.
He will now join an Astros team that had won 11 straight games heading into Saturday’s matchup with the Washington Nationals.
