McKenzie Corey Dickerson (born May 22, 1989) is an American professional baseball outfielder for the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball.

Career[edit]

Dickerson attended Brookhaven Academy in Brookhaven, Mississippi. He then enrolled at Meridian Community College in Meridian, Mississippi, where he played for the school's baseball team. The Colorado Rockies selected Dickerson in the eighth round of the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft.[1] The Rockies also drafted him in the 29th round in 2009, but he did not sign.

On June 3, 2011 while playing with the Asheville Tourists, Dickerson drove in 10 runs on 3 homers. It was tied for the most RBI in a single game in South Atlantic League history, a record that stood for 33 years.

Prior to the 2013 season, MLB named him the 16th best prospect in the Rockies system. The Rockies promoted Dickerson to the major leagues on June 21, 2013.[2] Dickerson made his debut the next day at Nationals Park where he picked up his first two career hits, both doubles, and his first career RBI, as the Rockies beat the Washington Nationals.

On July 28, 2013, Dickerson hit his first career home run off Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Donovan Hand, in a Rockies victory.
