I remember watching Evans play, but somehow I thought he had a brief stint with the Red Sox. My mistake.
Evans retired with 414 career major-league home runs and as the first player to hit more than 40 homers in both the American and National leagues and one of only two players, along with Reggie Jackson, to hit more than 100 homers for three different teams.
Oh, and that World Series ring on his finger from the 1984 Detroit Tigers is pretty darn impressive, too.
Evans chuckled that is ancient history to the batch of pro prospects he will be guiding in Victoria.
"I've seen pretty much everything . . . but the only way some of these guys would recognize me is from a Nintendo '87 video game," he quipped.
