Dwight Michael "Dewey" Evans is an American former professional baseball right fielder and right-handed batter who played with the Boston Red Sox (1972–90) and Baltimore Orioles (1991) in Major League Baseball (MLB). He was a three-time All-Star, won eight Gold Glove Awards, and won two Silver Slugger Awards. Evans played the second-most career games for the Red Sox of any player, surpassed only by Carl Yastrzemski.
Evans acquired the nickname "Dewey" while playing for Winston-Salem in 1971. It was coined by manager Don Lock who had already called Don Newhauser "Newie" and another teammate "Louie." In 1972, with Louisville, Evans was named MVP of the International League.
In his 20-year career, Evans batted .272, with 385 home runs, 1384 RBIs, 1470 runs, 2446 hits, 483 doubles, 73 triples, and 78 stolen bases in 2606 regular season games. In postseason batting, Evans batted .239 with four home runs and 19 RBIs, in 32 games played. In three All-Star Game appearances, Evans batted an overall 3-for-5, and had two walks and one run scored.
Evans spent two seasons as an MLB hitting coach; 1994 with the Colorado Rockies, and 2002 with the Red Sox. Evans was named a Player Development Consultant for the Red Sox in 2003; as of December 2017, he is still listed in that role by the Red Sox.
In 2000, Evans was inducted to the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame.
Evans and his wife Susan have been long-time supporters of the non-profit Neurofibromatosis, Inc., Northeast. Their sons Timothy and Justin were diagnosed with the disease in the 1980s.
In 2011, Evans appeared in the Farrelly brothers film Hall Pass as Maggie's father.
