HOF Case of the Month (Dec)

Dwight Evans was one of the best all-round performers the game of baseball has ever seen.  A longtime member of the Boston Red Sox, Evans patrolled right field at Fenway Park like no player before or since.  Regarded for his elite throwing arm, Dwight racked up in the excess of 200 career outfield assists.  But Dwight Evans was more than just a man with a muzzle-loader under his right sleeve: he was a talent with hardly a flaw.  Dwight could hit for both average and power, but it was his exceptional plate discipline that separated him from the pack.  It wasn’t an uncommon feat for Evans to exceed 100 walks a season.  His Hall of Fame peers, such men as Andre Dawson, Dave Winfield and his longtime Boston teammate Jim Rice weren’t the on-base dynamos that Dwight was.  For a better description of Dwight’s Hall of Fame case, visit my blog: hofdebate.wordpress.com.
