From 1972 to 1990, Dwight Evans appeared in 2,606 games for the Red Sox; only Carl Yastrzemski played in more games for Boston. In those 19 seasons Evans hit 385 home runs for the Sox. He also became known for starting his team off on the right foot by hitting home runs in four different Opening Day games during his tenure in Boston. To begin what would be one of the most memorable years in Red Sox history, Evans hit the first pitch of the 1986 season for a home run, becoming the first player in MLB history to do so. Evans’ big bat and flawless play in the outfield helped lead the team to the 1986 World Series where he hit .308 and slugged two home runs against the Mets in the hard-fought 7-game series.

The next season he hit a career-best .305 and 34 home runs. In 1989 the 37-year-old hit .285 and 20 home runs along with an even 100 RBIs. He finished up his career with Baltimore in 1991 and was then invited to impart his vast knowledge of hitting by becoming a batting coach, first for the Rockies and later with the Red Sox where he is currently the team’s Player Development Consultant. Evans narrowly missed out on the Hall of Fame voting, but the odds are he will be elected by the Veteran’s Committee in the future. Evans’ 1989 Worth WC115 model bat shows outstanding use with a cracked handle. The barrel shows several tremendous ball marks along with blue ink transfers. The handle has a moderate coat of pine tar and the cupped end has several chips missing. The bat comes with a LOA from PSA/DNA (1B17100) for the game use.
