Devon White

An excellent defensive outfielder with blazing speed, White didn’t hit higher than .257 in his first three pro seasons, but hit .291 with 14 HR and 60 RBI at Edmonton (Pacific Coast League) in 1986, with a league-leading 42 stolen bases, to win the Angels’ right-field job. Debuting in the “lively ball” season of 1987, White smacked 24 HR and stole 32 bases while hitting .263, earning a spot on the Topps All-Rookie Team. In 1988 White moved over to centerfield when Gary Pettis was traded to Detroit and won a Gold Glove for his often breathtaking defensive play. White stole second base, third base, and home consecutively in a September 1989 game.
