Casper Kelly Walsh alum Mike Devereaux was recently elected to the Baltimore Orioles Hall of Fame, the Casper Star-Tribune reported. Devereaux, a three-sports star of the Trojans, played seven of his twelve major league seasons with the Orioles.
The outfielder finished his career in Baltimore averaging .251, 94 home runs and 403 RBIs. In 1991 and 1992, Devereaux had at least 10 home runs, triples and doubles. He was named Most Valuable Oriole in 1992 after leading the team in 10 offensive categories.
Devereaux won National League Championship Series MVP honors for the Atlanta Braves in 1995 to help the Braves win the World Series that year.
The KWHS graduate from 1981 helped the Trojans to two consecutive national championship titles in both football and basketball in his junior and senior seasons and won four events (100, 200 and 400 meter lines and high jump) for KW to lead to the state athletics title in 1981.
Devereaux also played for the Casper Oilers before continuing his baseball career at Arizona State University.
