Home runs, RBI, hits, and batting average: these four statistics along with All-Star Game selections, Most Valuable Player and Gold Glove Awards were the criteria that most BBWAA voters used to judge a player's Hall of Fame candidacy in the late 1990's. With 385 career home runs, 1,384 RBI, 2,446 hits, and eight Gold Gloves, Dwight Evans had both the hitting and fielding accomplishments to make him a viable Hall of Fame candidate. Yet Evans lasted only three years on the BBWAA Hall of Fame ballot, never collecting more 10.4% of the vote. Unfortunately for Evans, too much of a focus on his adequate but unspectacular .272 career batting average, a crowded 1999 ballot, and the presence of a more famous teammate on the ballot each played a part in dooming the former Red Sox slugger's Hall of Fame candidacy. Evans hasn't played in a major league game since 1991, nor has he appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot in over a decade, yet today, more than ever, he is a great candidate for the Hall of Fame.
