At the end of the 2012 baseball season, many people expected the San Francisco Giants to put outfielder Melky Cabrera, who had been suspended for using a banned substance, on their post-season roster to help them make a run at World Championship. The team decided character was as important as production and left Cabrera off the roster and won the World Series anyway. Now, two years later when the Giants have won another championship and one of the men who makes key decisions for the club, Bobby Evans says his goal is the same now as it was in 2012, honor Christ in all he does. Evans has been with the Giants since 2006 and though his title has changed his job includes negotiating player contracts, helping acquire free agents and signing minor league talent. Evans says there can be pressure to be dishonest in those situations, but he wants to be known for being truthful. He said, “You want your life to point people to Christ. It starts for me with my own relationship with Christ. That’s going to direct and dictate what influence I have for Christ in my family, in my marriage, and in the workplace.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
