A member of the Red Sox Hall of Fame, Dwight Evans was voted Red Sox MVP four times by the Boston Baseball Writers. It might not be a stretch at all to agree with Herb Crehan, who writes, "Dewey might be the most underrated player in the history of the Red Sox."
A three-time All-Star, Evans won eight Gold Gloves in the stretch running from 1976 through 1985. At one time or another, he led the American League in on-base percentage, OPS, runs, runs created, total bases, home runs, extra base hits, bases on balls, and times on base. He had a rifle of an arm, patrolling Fenway's capacious right field for 19 years from 1972 through 1990, and three times led the league in assists - but runners quickly learned not to try to score on Dwight Evans.
Born Dwight Michael Evans on November 3, 1951, in Santa Monica, California, his family moved to Hawaii when he was still an infant and spent his early years living in Hawaii, mostly before Hawaii was granted statehood on August 21, 1959. Hawaii was built on beach culture, and Dwight did not get involved with baseball until the family moved to the Los Angeles suburb of Northridge at the age of nine. He attributes his passion for the game to a Dodgers game his father took him to soon after they arrived in the area. Dwight joined Little League and both pitched and played third base, an all-star both at Little League and Colt League. At Chatsworth High School, though, "I tried out for the junior varsity baseball team and I didn't even get a uniform." He was determined, though, and not only made the team his junior year but made All-Valley in the San Fernando Valley League. He won the league MVP award his senior year and found himself being scouted.
