SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Lou Evans was a promising young athlete from Milpitas High School with a real chance at becoming a professional baseball player. It wasn’t until after a short stint on the San Jose City College baseball roster that the left-handed pitcher got his shot at Major League Baseball stardom.
At 21-years-old, Evans was drafted in the 19th round by MLB’s Florida Marlins in 2001. But he never made it to the big show. Evans spent five seasons in the minor leagues and saw his earned run average get batted around between a dominating 1.12 ERA and a hopeless 27.00 ERA.
His final season brought him closer to home. The Chico Outlaws pitcher still couldn’t find a winning groove, but it wasn’t on this stage that Evans would claim stardom. The aspiring musician decided to pursue his passion on a different stage, and in front of a microphone.
Now…Evans is living in San Francisco and has been performing and writing new music. Watch video of Evans talk with KRON 4′s Gary Radnich about his music and singing the national anthem..Read Complete Story Here
