'Chauncey' Dubuc is a legendary sports figure whose career began right here at Saint Michael's High School at the turn of the 20th century.  A native of St. Johnsbury and an outstanding three-sport athlete, he frequently played for the College's varsity teams while only a high school student, and once threw a no-hitter against the University of Vermont!  He went on to star in baseball and basketball at Notre Dame for two years before leaving to begin his major league baseball career with the Cincinnati Reds at the tender age of 19.  Jean enjoyed a 12-year big league career, pitching for the Reds, Detroit Tigers, Boston Red Sox and New York Giants.  He posted 85 wins (he became one of baseball's first relief pitchers later in his innovative career) and a career earned run average of 3.04.  He was a member of the 1918 World Champion Boston Red Sox, and holds the distinction of being a close teammate of two of baseball's all-time greats; Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb.  After retiring as a player, Jean explored and succeeded in several different athletic ventures: as a productive talent scout for the Tigers who signed Hall of Famers Hank Greenberg and George 'Birdie' Tebbets, a minor league baseball manager, an owner and general manager of three different American Hockey League franchises, and as head coach of baseball and ice hockey at Brown University.
