More commonly known as “Dewey”, Evans began his career with an International League MVP award but it would not be until the second half of his career that he became known as a power hitter. He debuted in 1972 with the Boston Red Sox as a right fielder. Even with the strike, his 1981 year was his best, ending with 215 total bases, .927 OPS, 85 walks, 208 times on base, and his 22 homeruns, tying for homerun title. Evans also won eight Gold Glove awards, was named Sporting News’ outfielder for the AL All-Star team in 1982, 1984, and 1987 and Sporting News’ outfielder for the AL Silver Slugger Team in 1981 and 1987. In 1986, he set a MLB record by hitting four homeruns during an opening day game. He left the Red Sox in 1990, joining the Baltimore Orioles in 1991 but then retired in 1992 at which time he had a .272 batting average, 385 homeruns, 1,384 RBIs, 1,470 runs, 2,446 hits, 78 stolen bases, 483 doubles, and 73 triples, making him the second player for the Red Sox to play the most games. In 2000, Evans was inducted into the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame, followed by receiving several awards as a professional coach.
