TAMPA - A Robinson high school baseball standout, drafted in the first round this year by the Atlanta Braves, was arrested on felony criminal mischief charges Monday.
Tampa police said Steven Michael Evarts, 19, was in an ongoing feud with a 17-year-old high school player. The dispute involved who is playing what position on a high school team.
Evarts and two unidentified friends showed up at the teenager’s house about 3:45 a.m. on Dec. 9, police said. Using baseball bats, they smashed four windows and the windshield of a Chevrolet Blazer. The truck also had significant body damage, police said. The damage is estimated at $3,706.
In June, Evarts signed a contract with the Braves and accepted an $800,000 signing bonus. The left-handed pitcher was designated to play for the Gulf Coast League Braves. Last season, he went 2-2 with a 2.93 ERA.
