His talent for sports was breaking the school’s records, but later on, he chose to pursue his baseball career. After matriculating from high school, he attended Cosumnes River College in Sacramento.
Jermaine made a debut in his baseball career when he was selected by the Atlanta Braves in 1993 amateur, making his debut in 1996 with a home run. However, his career was developing at a fast pace, and he was traded to the Kansas City Royals shortly after the 1996 season.
Jermaine played 158 games for this team, scoring notable results on the field, and in 1998 he made the American League All-Star Team. In 2001 he became a part of the Oakland Athletics, and kept that position for the next four years.

In the beginning of the 2007 season, Dye wasn’t as successful as he had been previously, nevertheless, the situation changed for the better, as he met many challenges and made achievements such as knocking out 20 doubles and 16 home runs in the second half of the season, proving that his skills were still up to scratch. Getting back on the track, his contract was extended for another two years in August 2007.
