BIOGRAPHY

After being selected sixth in the Major League draft, he began his career with the California Angels. In his first full season in the major leagues, he hit 24 home runs and stole 32 bases, establishing himself as a power hitter and distinguished baserunner. During his second season, he earned his first Gold Glove Award for his impressive play in center field.

In 1990, Devon was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays, where he spent the next five seasons and won 2 back-to-back World Series championships. During his time with the Jays, he earned five Gold Gloves and played an instrumental role in the team’s two victories.  In Game 3 of the 1992 World Series, he made one of the most famous catches in World Series history, stealing a crucial hit from David Justice. Many compare this play to the iconic Willie Mays catch during Game 1 of the 1954 World Series. In fact, some argue that Devon’s play was even more impressive.

Following the 1995 season, Devon signed with the Florida Marlins, winning his third World Series in 1997. He later played with the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the Milwaukee Brewers, before retiring from baseball in 2001. During his 17 seasons in the Major Leagues, Devon racked up some very impressive numbers: 1,934 hits, 846 RBIs, 208 home runs and 346 stolen bases. He was also named to the American League All-Star team three times—in 1988, 1989 and 1993.

Since retiring from baseball, he has given back to the community through his involvement in Jays Care, Canada Cuba Goodwill Tour, The Roberto Alomar Foundation and various other events, including the Joe Carter Classic Golf Tournament.

EVENTS

The Devon White Baseball Academy
I am passionate about giving back to the community, illustrated through my extensive involvement with the Jays Care Foundation and I would like to expand my outreach to other communities.  The Devon White Baseball Academy’s sole purpose to is to help provide experiences to children who would not have received the opportunity otherwise.

This December, I will be hosting another 3-day baseball clinic in my home country of Jamaica. In the past, the Jamaican Little League program was unable to generate the funds necessary to provide quality instructional camps for children. Over 60 kids ages 10-14 years of all skill levels will be attending and we will focus on teaching them the fundamentals of the game including batting, fielding, base running, pitching and most importantly, having fun. Contact me to get involved: devon@devowhite.com.

As a part of Devon White Baseball Academy, Devon hosted a 3-day baseball clinic in Mandeville, Jamaica on June 16-18, 2016.

Approximately 60+ kids participated in this free event, with an age range from 10 – 14 years and received shorts, t-shirts and a baseball hat for participating.

Special thanks to the Toronto Blue Jays organization, Richard Rendek, Marlene Amaquewetung, Francis Chantiam, Paula Stamp and David Repath for their generous donations of equipment and support.

To this day, Devon is a proud Blue Jay and remains actively involved in the Blue Jays Baseball Academy. He lends his expertise and support alongside other Jays alumni, like Roberto Alomar, for programs such as the National Coaching Clinic and Honda Super Camps, as well as the Jays Care Foundation, the team’s charitable arm.
