Career highlights and awards

Michael Devereaux (born April 10, 1963 in Casper, Wyoming) is a former Major League Baseball outfielder who was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the fifth round of the 1985 amateur draft. He made his debut for that same team on September 2, 1987. Along with the Dodgers, Devereaux played for the Baltimore Orioles in two separate stints, and the Chicago White Sox, Atlanta Braves and Texas Rangers. The peak of his career was from 1989–1993, with his best season coming in 1992 with the Orioles, when he played in 159 games, with 24 home runs, 107 RBIs and a .276 batting average. His other major achievement was with the Braves in 1995 when he won the NLCS MVP award by driving in the game-winning RBI in the 10th inning of game one and hitting a three run home run in game four. Devereaux played his final game with his original team, the Dodgers, on April 17, 1998, only a week after his 35th birthday.

In 12 seasons, he hit .254 batting average for his career, 105 home runs, 490 RBIs, three grand slams, 635 strikeouts, 85 stolen bases, and only 29 errors.

He went to Kelly Walsh High School and played collegiately at Mesa Community College and Arizona State University.


Career highlights

On July 15, 1989, Devereaux hit a walk-off home run in an 11-9 win against the California Angels[1]. The call was controversial, as the home run ball came extremely close to the foul pole. Angels manager Doug Rader argued the call with umpire Ken Kaiser the following day and was ejected prior to the start of the next game[2].

Post-Baseball Career

In December 2009, it was announced that former Baltimore Orioles center fielder Mike Devereaux will serve as field coach for the Delmarva Shorebirds (Baltimore Orioles Class-A Affiliate) in 2010, replacing former third baseman Ryan Minor, who has been promoted to manager.[3].
