Gabe Gross was a a college football quarterback at Auburn University before electing to focus on baseball. He was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 1st round of the 2001 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Ellis Dungan and made his pro debut that summer.

In 2004 and 2005 Gross saw action with the Toronto Blue Jays, and with the Milwaukee Brewers in 2006 and 2007. He was let go by the Brewers early in the 2008 season, but he landed on his feet as he was picked up by the Tampa Bay Rays, got the bulk of the team's playing time in right field and reached the World Series. In 2009, he shared the Rays' right field spot with Gabe Kapler and Ben Zobrist but again received the majority of starts at the position. In both years, he was part of a platoon in which he was the starter against right-handed pitchers.

Gross returned to Auburn University in 2012 as an assistant coach.

Gross called games in the Louisville Regional in 2014 and the Long Beach Super Regional in 2017 for ESPN.
