Deveraux is well known for his time with the Baltimore Orioles and has been inducted into the Orioles Hall of Fame. The 12-year veteran never earned an All-Star appearance but was a great part of the teams he joined.

His stint with the Braves was very short as he was acquired from the White Sox during the 1995 season. He wasn't great during his 29 games with Atlanta but was a big part of the postseason, earning NLCS MVP honors.

Devereaux is known in Braves lore by driving in the game-winning RBI during the 11th inning of game one against the Reds and later hitting a three-run home run during game four. This helped lead the Braves to a World Series against Cleveland where they finally won the first title since the team moved to Atlanta.

He did some minor league coaching when he retired after the 1998 season and has done some work with the Orioles broadcast team over at MASN. He didn't have a long stint in Atlanta but he provided a memorable few months in a Braves uniform.
