Hall of Fame Testimonials

“Dewey was a great offensive player and one of the greatest right-fielders to play the game, there’s no doubt in my mind that he belongs in the Hall of Fame.”   
Hall of Famer and former teammate Carl Yastrzemski

"Dwight Evans is comfortably above the Hall of Fame line. He contributed to his team in more ways than either Parker or Cedeno, and he had more good seasons — and fewer bad seasons — than either Parker or Cedeno. Three hundred wins is a Hall of Famer, and I think Dwight Evans is a Hall of Famer."  
Bill James

"I think he belongs in the Hall of Fame and that's just the offense, and then you got the eight Gold Gloves. I think he belongs in there, I truly do."   
Walt Hriniak - Former Red Sox Hitting Coach

"You've got one of the greatest outfielders in the game.  I know he's in your [Red Sox] Hall of Fame - Dwight Evans, and I'll be the first guy to stand up and say he should be in the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame."   
Tom Brookens - Current first base coach and former Detroit Tigers Third Baseman '79-'90.

"...if you look at sabermetrics--which I think more people do today--that Evans will be the guy that gets in."   
Peter Gammons, Dec  9, 2013 Edition of MLB's Hot Stove
